06/01/2019 - 2019 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National West
Jake continues to show as a top prospect on the diamond. In the OF not many balls get down that are hit his way (6.43 60 time). Transfer exchange is smooth as he zips throws (92 mph velocity) on a line through his target. He has the versatility to play all 3 OF spots effectively. At the plate, he continues to shine. He stands in with a solid/strong base and has fluid rhythm to load. Barrel delivery is short/quick with aggression as he connects with power driving (92 mph exit velocity) to all parts of the field. Jake has the makings of a special type player who should be a solid 2020 draft pick.
10/06/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures West
Jake is a quick twitch athlete who ran a blazing 6.25 in the 60 at the Futures West event. Along with that straight-line speed Jake has a quick first step and accelerates quickly, allowing him to have plus range in the OF. He profiles as a CF at the next level, making him even more valuable as a middle-of-the-field defender. At the plate Jake has quick, strong hands that get the barrel to and through the ball in a hurry. He has a gap-to-gap approach and the ball carries well off his bat. Jake plays for a strong high school program at Huntington Beach and appears to be the next high-level prospect that the school produces.
