Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHP/OFPosition Projection

09/15/2019 - College PREP - Indianapolis, IN Jacob is an athletic LHP/OF prospect who will graduate in 2022. On the mound, Jacob gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a quick arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. Jacob shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 77mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 64-67mph with sharp 1-7 break. Changeup sits from 67-69mph as he throws with deceptive arm speed. In the field, Jacob shows active footwork and attacks the ball aggressively. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front with soft hands. He makes a quick exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistent with carry through his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a square stance and takes his stride on time. He gets back into his load and takes a direct swing, leading to solid line drives and gap to gap pop. Overall, Jacob is a solid prospect who should find success going into his sophomore season.

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).
