11/04/2018 - College PREP - Plano (DFW), TX Jake is a solid, athletic, 2-way player who pitches and plays SS. On the mound, Jake stands over the rubber well balanced, he separates on time, and gets good extension on his pitches. He works on a downhill plane, has good direction toward home, and competes in the zone. A looser arm action, softer landing, and working out of the windup can help mound effectiveness get better. At SS, Jake has efficient footwork, he centers the ball well, and fields in a square position. He gains ground, has a clean exchange, and throws with momentum across the diamond. Jake can improve defensively by fielding further out in front and with work on accuracy. Offensively, Jake has an open stance, good balance, and his hands are quick. He has fast bat speed, makes consistent contact, and works the ball gap to gap; using his lower body. Better rhythm and timing will help solid hitting numbers get even better.
