Jake continues to show as a prospect on the diamond. On the bump, he attacks hitters, throwing a lot of strikes as he works to get ahead of hitters through a quick tempo. Fastball showed a range of 87-89 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is tremendous as he attacks hitters and works to get ahead, utilizing both sides of the plate.

Jake is an imposing figure with a 6'3", 220-pound frame and a quiet confidence on the mound. His delivery is sound and repeatable and, despite still ramping back up after some time off, he touched an easy 91 mph with his fastball. He has good downhill plane to all of his offerings that include a curve and change in addition to his live fastball. He landed several curves that had close to 12-6 action and mixed in an occasional change. There is a lot to like in Jake, who is committed to the University of Miami.
