07/21/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Jacob is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect with tremendous upside. Behind the dish, Jacob has a plus arm and has proper throwing mechanics. He could improve his footwork and quicken his release. He starts in a quiet primary and but could be more athletic in his secondary stance. He shows a low target, works behind the ball, and controls the low pitch. When blocking he's aggressive to the ball, leads with his glove, and controls balls in the dirt with his chest. At the plate, Jacob starts in a squared stance, he loads his hands back, and has an explosive backside. He's aggressive on the fastball and has a gap to gap approach. On the bump, Jacob has good presence, he attacks hitters with the fastball, and has a sweeping breaking ball. He has good rhythm, finds a balance point, and works downhill. Jacob is a hard worker and we hope to see his progress in the future.
