12/05/2021 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Windsor (Madison), WI Jake is a solid, athletic C/3B who has a promising future on the diamond. 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 well out front. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well. Pop times showed in 2.28 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. At 3B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works around ball and plays with momentum to his target. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases foot quickness. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a great feel for the barrel. With 4 years to further develop, Jake has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
