On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 80 mph. Fastball shows sinking action. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with late / sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for pitch with sink. Off speed stuff show as outstanding pitches that will get outs.

11/01/2020 - National Evaluation and Tryout - Frisco (DFW), TX Jake is an athletic OF/LHP prospect who continues to showcase his skills on the field.

He gets good extension through the ball and produces solid gap to gap pop. On the mound, Jake gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through his release, staying inline toward the plate. Jake shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 78mph. Breaking ball sits from 66-67mph with 1-7 break. Changeup sits from 71-73mph with sinking action as he throws with deceptive arm speed.

07/14/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Frisco (DFW), TX Jake is an athletic L/L OF who has speed and a solid all-around skill-set. In the OF, he takes a quick first step and hustles to track down fly-balls hit to his right and left (60 yard = 7.20). He works behind the ball, gathers well.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
