10/13/2013 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Jake is a SS who can swing the stick. Offensively, he displays patience and lets the ball travel into the zone. He delivers the barrel with plus bat speed which results his hard contact. He has pop off of his bat which will increase as he uses more of his lower 1/2. Defensively, Jake is aggressive and comes to get the ball. He gathers well and plays from right to left through the ground ball. Increased arm strength will benefit his play on the left side of the INF. Jake is only a 2016 graduate and has a lot of time to continue developing his defensive game.
