Jared is a 2-way player (3B/RHP) who plays the game hard. At 3B, he has active footwork and works into a square fielding position behind the GB. He presents his glove out in front and tracks GB's into a soft mitt. Transfer is clean with accurate throws across the diamond. A long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his overall development. As a hitter, this righty shows a square setup with simple/quiet actions and patience. He has a good eye for the zone and only swings at ones he likes (going 2 for 3 at the event with 2 singles and 2 walks). On the mound, this RHP works to keep all of his pitches down in the zone. FB ranges from 51-53 mph. Changeup has some sink and compliments his FB well. He is around the zone consistently and challenges hitters to swing the bat. Working to follow through and finish with more extension will help to improve effectiveness on both pitches. Only a 2027 grad - Jared has a solid skill-set with still a ton of time to progress.
