08/19/2018 - College PREP - Dickinson, ND Jaren is a tall, strong 1B who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying outstanding hitting abilities with tremendous power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a plus feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. At 1B, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft and presents well out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls through a low approach. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Jaren has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
