Jacob continues to show a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate with on line zip (87 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side.
