Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHPPosition Projection

06/15/2013 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 Derek continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities on the mound. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date, topping out at 82 mph. Fastball shows arm side run, and he uses it effectively, especially against right hand hitters. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with sharp breaking action and shows as a quality pitch against both righties and lefties when he stays on top. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Derek did a good job of mixing pitches and knows how to pitch. His control and delivery have been great each time we have seen him. His stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained, but overall he is a poised LHP that will be able to help a college program next year.

05/27/2013 - National Tryout - Jupiter, FL Jacobs shows consistency on the bump. FB fills up the zone as this crafty lefty works both sides of the plate, throwing strikes. CB has late action and is solid off-speed pitch. CH also shows to be more effective and has sinking action. He gets out in front and gets good extension on his follow through. He works in-line and downhill toward the plate as he has a repeatable delivery. If he can get that FB velo to climb, it will only make him that much more effective.

01/27/2013 - College PREP - Delray Beach, FL Derek is a tall, solid LHP that will graduate in 2014. Delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work well to the plate. Fastball shows a range of 73-76 mph with arm side run on a slight downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual as he needs to work to stay on top of pitch more. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with arm side run. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and develops better control of all his pitches. Jacobs has abilities with a lot of room to improve.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
