08/20/2020 - Summer Pro Training Experience - NY (HS) Jake continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers ground. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.17 with accuracy and carry on his throws. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. At the plate, power potential is now outstanding. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop.
