11/05/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures Texas Fresh off a physical football game the night before the event, Jacob showed extremely well at the UABF Futures event in Texas. His proportioned frame has a mix of strength, flexibility and athleticism that is a great fit for the catching position. He receives and blocks well, and makes a good move from behind the plate to throw to 2B (times as low as 1.96 in the workout). At the plate Jacob has a clean stroke with good plane that keeps the barrel in the zone for a long time. He hits hard line drives to all fields, and has the look of more power in the future. His short stroke allows him to catch up to velocity as well as adjust to off-speed offerings. Overall, this is a high upside prospect at a premium position - a player to follow closely.
