12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Jakob is a coachable OF prospect who continued getting betting during his time at the Baseball Factory Winter Classic. In the field, Jakob makes the routine plays and works to keep his throws accurate to his target. Jakob can improve defensively by taking a quicker first step and by getting into a more athletic fielding position. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes his stride on time. He is smooth getting into his load and comes through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with fast bat speed and good extension through the ball which leads to hard contact and line drives to the gaps. Jakob can improve as a hitter by keeping his hands up in his load. With four more years to develop, Jakob has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
