08/06/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Jared is a thin, wirey OF who will graduate in 2015. Defensively, Jared has good pre-pitch actions, he reads the ball off the bat well, and he makes plays. He has a clean exchange and throws with accuracy to his target. Looser actions, better routes to the ball, and added arm strength will help defense get better. At the plate, Jared has a good stance, good direction, and he makes contact. He battles well and he makes consistent contact. A quicker bat, not drifting, and more lower 1/2 will help hitting improve.
