Jack is an athletic and talented 2021 2-way prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week. At the hot corner, Jack starts in an athletic position, he plays through his backhand, and throws from multiple arm angles. Being on time with his prep step, and improving his footwork will allow him to have a quick first step to the ball. At the plate, Jack starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and has a simple approach. He has rhythm in his hands and stays balanced through contact. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation with his lower half, and attack the fastball early in counts. On the bump, Jack has good mound presence, separates on time, and attacks the strike zone. Jack will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
