Jarred is a solid 3B/RHP that will graduate in 2014. Currently, he projects best at 3B for the next level. Feet are active / aggressive as he moves well laterally and works to square balls up, displaying soft / sure hands. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Defensive grades will continue to improve as he works to improve backhand and increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a balanced / squared approach and he tracks the ball well. Hands are quick and aggressive, working through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 75-76 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with late break and shows potential as being a quality pitch at the next level. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength. Jarred has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
