01/30/2021 - Winter Pro Training Experience - Nor Cal (HS - Jan) Jacob is an outstanding (2021) catching prospect who plays the game at a very high level. Offensively, this righty stands in with an open setup and active hands to load. Barrel delivery is explosive as he jumps on pitches he likes, squares the ball up with power and drives it to the deep parts of the part (exit velocity at an impressive 90 mph). In game AB's he went a remarkable 8 for 10 with 3 2B and 1 3B! Defensively, he sits in well with flexion and sway tracking pitches into a soft mitt. Lateral actions are quick/athletic as he is around pitches in the dirt centering them off of his chest. Transfer to throw is quick/smooth as throws are right on the bag with zip - pop times at 1.88 (arm velo = 84 mph). Jacob has the tools that will immediately make an impact at the next level.
