Jack is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the week at Vero Beach. In the OF, Jack is on time with his pre-step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and plays through ground balls. He creates momentum in his lower half and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Jack starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, get his front foot down on time, and create backside rotation. On the bump, Jack gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He has tail on his fastball and throws it down in the zone for strikes. He needs to continue to work north to south and keep a strong front side. Jack will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
