11/13/2016 - College PREP - Marlborough (Boston), MA Jacob is a tall, solid catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive approach. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently through the swing. Behind the plate, hands / feet work well together in getting rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.48-2.60 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to develop and get more reps. With 4 years to further develop, Jacob has potential with time and room to progress his game.
