10/31/2020 - Official Player Development Membership - Virginia Beach, VA Jacob is an athletic C/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.31 60 time. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying excellent hitting abilities with near pro level power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (96 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls out front. Pop times showed in 2.11 range with accuracy on his throws as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls and reads balls well off the bat. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers ground. With 2 years to further develop, Jacob has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
