Jack continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date, topping out at 73 mph. Fastball showed a range of 71-73 mph with tailing action. He maintains arm speed on his changeup and shows a feel for pitch. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. At 1B, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Feet are active but needs to attack balls more and play through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness.

Jack is a huge two-way prospect with a projectable body and a great baseball frame. He uses his size and strength to flash pop and big power potential as he continues to grow and develop. He is smooth in the box to load and launch, staying balanced throughout his swing. His lower half is strong to generate bat speed and pop, especially to the pull side. At first, he works well around the bag, creating good angles for fielders to make throws. He gets square to field and does a good job keeping the ball in front while making accurate throws. On the bump, this big lefty generates good arm side action on his fastball that sits in the mid 60's and complements it with a 2-8 curveball. He shows smooth rhythm in his delivery and is on time to keep his arm in sync and get to a consistent release point. Getting on top of his pitches will result in more action and better location. Jack is an intriguing prospect we look forward to following as he continues to develop.

Jack is a strong and talented 2021 2-way player. At 1B, Jack works well off the bag and picks balls out of the dirt consistently. He plays through the ball, has a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws on double plays. At the plate, Jack starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He has quick hands and uses his backside well, and shows pull side pop. On the bump, Jack separates on time, stays squared toward his target, and has a loose arm action. He pounds the bottom half of the zone and has a balanced finish. Jack will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
