07/06/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - New Britain (Hartford), CT Jake is a (5'9"/160) RHP who has a 3-pitch mix and fills the zone up with strikes. He works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and drives in-line toward the dish. FB ranges from 70-73 mph as he works it to both sides of the plate. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape - 62-64 mph. He works to keep the ball down in the zone which will result in GB outs. Working to finish with extension out over his front side will help to improve effectiveness on all pitches. As a hitter, this righty shows an open stance with patience waiting for a pitch he likes. Swing is short/direct to and through the zone as he connects and looks to drive the ball up the middle of the field. This 2022 grad has tools with still time to develop to get to where he wants to be.
