Nick Gonzales is one of the best generational talents in college baseball and is waiting for the MLB draft.

Nick Gonzales player of the month

In 2018 as a freshman, the second baseman earned Western Athletic Conference freshman of the year and first-team all conference. He followed this up with winning the NCAA batting title with a .432 batting average in 2019. That followed by becoming the Cape Cod League MVP also in 2019.

The legendary season

The 2020 season only played 16 games but it was the best offensive display ever in college baseball. It was too bad it ended early due to the coronavirus.

Nick Gonzales posted ungodly numbers during the 16 game stint. He batted .448 while his on base percentage skyrocketed to .610. His slugging percentage was at a 1.155 while crushing 12 homeruns and 26 RBIs. He was named National Player Of The Month before the season was postponed.

What is next?

Nick Gonzales is no doubt a top five draft talent. Although the draft is uncertain he will be waiting to play in the Major Leagues jumpstarting his pro career. Which team will select this generational talent? How soon will he start? With a lifetime batting average of .399 I’m sure someone would benefit.
