Jack is a talented 2022 2-way prospect that was eager to learn and has a great work ethic. In the OF, Jack starts in an athletic position and hustles after the ball. He needs to continue to work behind the ball and create momentum in his lower half when throwing. Building arm strength and improving his first step to the ball will elevate his game at the position. At the plate, Jack starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He rotates his core, makes consistent contact, and drives the ball to all fields. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and creating backside drive with his lower half will allow him to have a compact swing. On the bump, Jack gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and works north to south in his delivery. He has confidence in his fastball and commands his curveball down in the zone. Jack was willing to make in game adjustments and we hope to see his progress in the future.

He works with a clean arm action and finishes with his chest over his front knee. Jack has a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 68mph. Breaking ball ranges from 57-60mph with 2-8 break. Changeup sits from 62-63mph with good sinking action as he throws with fastball arm speed. Jack can improve as a pitcher by extending through on his release. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a crouched stance and works to barrel up the baseball. Jack can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With four more years to develop, Jack has time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
