04/14/2019 - College PREP - Modesto, CA Jacob is a young, lean, 3rd baseman with solid skills. Defensively Jacob has active feet, firm hands, and he gets into a good ready position. He moves well to the ball, fields squarely, and has a quick exchange with accuracy to his target. Defensive grades can improve with more aggressiveness to the ball, a better glove angle, and added arm strength. Offensively, Jacob has an open stance, good balance, and a square stride toward the pitcher. He has a line drive approach, hits hard to the pull side, and uses some lower body. Improved timing, a shorter swing, and work on barrel accuracy will help hitting numbers spike.
