09/11/2016 - College PREP - Fresno, CA Jacob is a young, 2018 catching prospect. He is very advanced defensively behind the plate and it shows with his feel for receiving and quick actions to block. He is athletic in his stance with quick, fluid feet to stay balanced and get down to block. His hands are soft to receive and quick to transfer and throw with carry to his target. At the plate, this switch hitter shows a solid swing from both sides with smooth rhythm and a good approach. He has active hands to load to a power position, getting his front foot down on time to launch and stays short to the ball, working to the opposite field. Keeping his head steady throughout his swing will lead to more hard contact and base hits. Jacob is a very intriguing prospect who we look forward to watching progress.
