He is athletic enough to receive in a hybrid one knee stance to capture the bottom of the zone. He displayed clean transfers with an accurate over an over the top release. He has great body awareness on blocking balls in the dirt. At third, Jake demonstrated active feet and a square athletic base in the fielding position. His transition from fielding to throwing is smooth which allows him to separate into a proper throwing position. His feeds are accurate to both first and second. At the plate, Jake begins with a square base and utilizes a short stride. He has a fluid rhythm and keeps a solid balanced approach during his swing.
