12/20/2019 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Jacob is a solid, strong 1B/LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact and utilizes his lower half well with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At 1B, feet are active as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. He works to square ground balls up, displaying clean hands as he makes the routine plays. He will benefit by presenting hands more out front. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he increases foot quickness. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 72-74 mph with sinking action. Braking ball displays 12/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength and works to throw more strikes. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 3 years to further develop, Jacob has potential with time and room to progress his game.
