03/04/2012 - College PREP - Indianapolis, IN Jake is a big SS with a strong lower 1/2. In the INF, Jake has sure hands, active feet, and he shows some decent range. He fields in an athletic position, plays through the ball, and his exchange is quick and clean. Jake has a short arm action and throws with accuracy and carry to his target. Fielding further out in front and quickening his feet can help defensive tool grades rise. Offensively, Jake has a square set-up, a short / square stride, and good balance. He tracks the ball well, has good bat speed, and he gets extension through the ball. Improve rhythm, letting the ball travel, and spraying to all fields can help offensive numbers get better.
