11/11/2010 - Pirate City Select Training Jacob is a young, active OF with a bright future. He showed improvements in multiple areas since we last saw him earlier this fall. Defensively, Jacob has very good instincts, he tracks the ball well, and he makes plays. He takes great routes and angles, and he squares his body well to his target. If Jacob can lengthen and strengthen his arm, and add physical strength, skills will improve. At the plate, Jacob has a good eye, great hands, and he can hit to all fields. He didn't display power at the event, and needs to continue T work and add strength for hitting to improve. Jacob has a good base of tools and will get better with growth and maturity, as he has a good attitude, is coachable, and applies what he learns to game situations.
