Jack worked out at SS and on the mound during his last workout and showed nice defensive and offensive improvements. Defensively, Jack has good energy, active feet, and a good first step toward the ball. He takes good angles, fields cleanly, and throws with a short action with consistency to his target. On the mound, Jack works in good tempo, his arm action is loose, and he gets good extension on his pitches. Offensively, Jack is an aggressive hitter with a good load, solid balance, and fast bat speed. He has a line drive swing, makes hard contact, and uses his lower body well.

Jack is a 2021 2B/RHP that continues to show a solid set of fundamentals defensively. Jack has good pre pitch movement, attacks the ball, plays through the ball and makes strong accurate throws to all bases. Improving his overall foot speed will increase his ability to create more range. At the plate, Jack takes aggressive hacks, stays through the ball, and has a disciplined approach. If he continues to work on driving his back hip through the ball he will increase his power to all fields. As a Pitcher, Jack needs to continue to have good tempo on the mound, stay balanced over the rubber, repeat his delivery, and throw downhill. Jack has a good feel for the game and continues to improve with experience.
