Steve Nyisztor MLB Draft Profile

Rutgers College Baseball Steve Nyisztor 2012 MLB Draft Profile

Steve Nyisztor, Junior, Second Base, Rutgers

Rutgers Team Page



During his freshman campaign, Steve Nyisztor was one of the best middle infielders in the collegiate ranks. The Rutgers product is a big 6-4 shortstop who can also play at second base. Defensively Nyisztor is a stud, but his bat will get him drafted early in the 2012 MLB Draft. As a true freshman, the Toms River, New Jersey native led the Scarlet Knights with a .410 batting average. He also drove in 51 runs and scored 52. Nyisztor only played in a dozen games as a sophomore for Rutgers, but he still has the talent to be an early pick in the draft.


Final Projection:

Nyisztor is close to having it all. He has a fine arm and can be a superb shortstop at times. At other times, that has not been entirely the case, but the talent is there. As he proved as a freshman with Rutgers, he can hit for average. With his size and speed, he can get to balls that other middle infielders would never have a chance to get. It is also that size that gives pro teams hope that he can develop a little more power to fit into his slender 6-4 frame.
