09/09/2018 - College PREP - Knoxville, TN Jacob is a solid, strong LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point and works in line to his target. Fastball showed a range of 74-77 mph. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with late / sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs at the next level. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Jacob has an upside on the mound and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
