07/07/2013 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Jacob is a 2014 two-way guy that has good actions. Defensively, he gains ground to field ground balls with sure hands and active feet. He has solid back-hand mechanics and has carry to his throws. Offensively, he has a short swing path with good rhythm and bat speed. He has a gap-to-gap approach and shows a through lower-half with decent pop. When on the bump, he throws 4 pitches for strikes with a fastball that tops out at 83 MPH with run. His best pitch is his 11/5 curve-ball that has sharp bite at 65-69 MPH. His arm action is long and loose and the ball comes out of his hand with ease. Overall, we see Jacob projecting more as a 3B/RHP at the next level, with his ability to swing and swing with some pop.
