02/04/2018 - College PREP - Houston, TX Jared is a lean C/SS prospect with an arm that plays all over the field. His arm flashes behind the plate with low pop times (1.98 seconds) and at short as he makes long throws from the hole. Behind the plate, he sits in a relaxed, athletic position and moves well laterally to block and receive. His hands are quick and clean to receive and get rid of the ball to make strong throws to second. At the plate, he has compact mechanics with a direct path to the ball to deliver the barrel. His lower half works well to generate bat speed and pop as he stays balanced throughout his swing. Shortening his stride will improve his timing and result in more squarely hit balls. Jared is an intriguing prospect we look forward to watching as he develops.
