Jack continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, defensive abilities are solid as he shows smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Hands are clean and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to increase foot quickness. Throws are accurate with carry (81 mph velocity) across the diamond. At the plate, hitting / power potential is now solid through a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 75 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Jack is a hard working 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. At 2B, Jack has good arm strength for the position and makes accurate throws. He has good feeds on double plays and good footwork off the bag on double plays. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, presents a low/early glove, and field the ball in front of his body. Playing through the ball will help him to stay down when he fields it. Improving his first step quickness will also improve his range. At the plate, Jack starts in an open stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and rotates his backside. He attacks the inside part of the ball and he looks to drive the ball to all fields. On the bump, Jack gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a clean arm action. He gets ahead early with his fastball and gets run on his changeup. He needs to continue to get his fingers on top of his breaking ball and continue to ride his back leg down hill in his delivery. Jack will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
