06/21/2014 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2
Jacob showed solid offensive skills and good power in his bat during his time in Omaha. He is a strong, physical player with good hand eye coordination, fast bat speed, and power into the gaps. In the INF, feet are quick, hands are sure, and Jacob shows hustle at all times. He moves well laterally, his exchange is clean, and he throws with good carry to his target. On the mound, Jacob showed a clean arm action, decent overall mechanics, and he finishes out over his front knee.

Jacob is a talented 2-way player (1B/RHP) who excels at the plate. Offensively, this RH swinger shows an athletic setup with good balance. He delivers the barrel to and through the zone with strength as he shows pop to the opposite field. At 1B, Jacob shows good bag awareness as he works light on his feet and can make adjustments to inaccurate throws. He stays down in an athletic position and fields the ball cleanly. On the bump, this RHP works through smooth tempo and gets to a controlled balance point. FB tops out at 71 mph while breaking ball shows gradual break. He works the ball to both sides of the plate and throws strikes. A skilled player - Jacob should find success on the diamond.
