06/17/2012 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Jared is a lanky OF that will graduate in 2013. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 6.91 60 time. He utilizes his quick feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls and uses two hands well through the fielding process. He needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through and improve defensive grades. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Tipton shows a balanced approach with rhythm. He works to keep hands inside the ball through ha level swing path. Lower half rotates fully through the swing with power numbers improving as he improves barrel accuracy and keeps hands through the ball at point of contact. Jared has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
