Official Scouting Report

  • CPosition Projection

07/13/2015 - National Tryout Plus - Carrollton (Dallas), TX Jacob continues to show well on the diamond. Offensively, this strong RHH shows quiet/simple actions with patience waiting for his pitch. Barrel delivery is quick as he whips the barrel through a level path and connects, hitting line-drives to all parts of the field. Behind the plate, he works quickly around pitches in the dirt and deadens it, keeping it in front. Exchange is quick/clean as he gains ground toward 2B with impressive pop times of 1.98. Runners will not want to test his arm. Whitten is a solid prospect who has a bright future ahead of him in the game.

12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City Jacob is a solid catcher who continues to improve his game in all areas. Behind the dish he receives with firm hands, presents glove and gives a good target, and has good body control. He stays in line with his throws and has a clean exchange. Needs to continue working on blocking to become a more complete catcher. Offensively he has an athletic setup, good balance, and uses his lower half well. He takes a direct path to the ball with a level swing. He makes consistent contact, but would like to see him stay inside of the ball more as he tends to get long. With his athleticism and attitude, Jacob will be a player to watch in the future.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
