Jace is a lean SS who has a promising future on the diamond. At SS, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot speed. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. With 3 years to further develop, Jace has a big upside with time and room to progress his game.

Jace is an athletic, 2-way player with good skills at both positions. At SS, Jace has active feet, a presentable glove, and a quick 1st step to the ball. He reads hops well, fields cleanly, and throws with consistency and momentum from a short arm action to his target. In the OF, Jace has active feet, he covers ground, and fields athletically. He plays through properly, and throws with a loose arm with carry and momentum toward his target. At the plate, Jace has an open stance, good balance, and fast bat speed.
