Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHP/OFPosition Projection

09/16/2018 - College PREP - Moosic (Scranton), PA Jacob is an athletic and slender 2021 2 -way prospect. In the OF, Jacob is on time with his pre pitch set up, he has a quick first step the ball, and creates angles. He is aggressive on ground balls and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing the ball. At the plate, Jacob starts in a crouched stance, gets his front foot down on time, and stays flat through the zone. He attacks the ball with his lower half, stays balanced through contact, and makes hard contact to all fields. On the bump, Jacob has good tempo in his delivery and gets extension over the front side. His fastball tops out at 71 mph, he has a traditional 12-6 break in his curveball, and he cuts his changeup. Jacob will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
