05/26/2012 - College PREP - Salt Lake City, UT Jake is a catcher that will graduate in 2014. Behind the plate, he displays natural instincts with quick feet and good arm strength. Pop times range from 2.06-2.3 but will improve as Jake learns to stay low to throw and stays in-line with his target. Hands are firm when receiving with good lateral movement when blocking. Overall catching grades will improve with better sway. Offensively, Jake displays good balance in his lower half with a quick hand path. Does a good job staying through with his top hand getting good extension. Solid swing but will increase hitting grades by a developing a load, getting his hands back and body centered before he starts his swing. With 2 years to further develop Jake displays abilities with room to continue to improve.
