01/07/2022 - 2022 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (AZ) Jacob continues to showcase his baseball abilities at the Preseason All American event. He did show as a catcher for the first time at the event. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off a soft chest. Pop times showed in the 2.27 range with accuracy / carry (82 mph velocity) on his throws. Offensively, he continues to shine through a tall setup. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation through a balanced approach. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently, working to be on time. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 81 mph. Fastball shows arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup arm side run. Control is solid as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
