09/16/2018 - College PREP - Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 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.
