07/05/2022 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition (MS)
Jake continues to shine in his baseball abilities at the Cape Cod event. At 1B, he shows smooth / fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. Mental makeup is a plus as he works hard and is very coachable.

Jake is a 1B prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the diamond. In the field, Jake creates good angles and fields in an athletic position. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Presenting his glove to the ball sooner can help Jake field ground balls more efficiently. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a closed stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth to load and works through a level swing, spraying the ball to all fields. Jake can generate more pop off the barrel by driving his lower half more. With five more years to develop, Jake has the time and potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

He maintains a still head and tracks pitches into the zone. Swing is direct to and through the contact point as he barrels the ball up consistently. Working to square up his back foot and engage his lower 1/2 throughout the swing will aid in his offensive development. Only a 2026 grad - Rogers still has a ton of time to progress.
