01/28/2018 - College PREP - San Diego, CA Jacob is a lean, athletic 2019 prospect who excels behind the plate. He is an excellent defensive catcher with receiving and blocking ability that save his team runs. Behind the dish, his feet and hands work in sync to receive quietly, sticking pitches in the zone, and slide to block balls in the dirt. He shows a quick, clean exchange and good footwork to make strong, accurate throws down to second. At the plate, he has strong hands and works on a level path through the zone, extending through contact to drive the ball. He makes consistent, square contact and shows pop to the pull side. Driving through his lower half will unlock even more power moving forward. Jacob is a talented player with well-rounded tools on the field.
