12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Jakob is a strong, athletic player who continues to improve his tools. He has strengthened his arm, going from 75mph raw velo to 77mph and hits the ball much harder now (88mph exit velo vs 77mph). He shows an athletic secondary setup behind the plate and move agilely to receive with presented hands. He blocks well and has quick actions to throw, gaining momentum to his target. At the plate, he shows good balance and timing to load and swing, covering the entire strike zone. His bat is fast through the zone on a compact path to show pop, especially to the pull side. Getting ready with his load earlier will allow him to handle higher velocity. Jakob is a player we expect to have a successful senior season.

08/26/2018 - College PREP - Lebanon (Nashville), TN Jakob is a solid, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is outstanding as indicated by his 60 time of 6.89. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed a range of 2.01-2.19 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft / sure and he tracks balls well through the receiving process. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner. At the plate, he continues to shine through a closed setup. Hands are quick and work to and through the baseball, creating extension. He has strength in his swing and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Jakob has potential with time and room to progress his game.

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).
