Jaxson posted his best 60 time to date (7.33 seconds) and improved his exit velocity to 79 MPH during his last workout in Plane. He is a good sized, solid 1st baseman with good awareness around the bag. Jaxson keeps the ball in front of his body, moves well laterally, and has a quick exchange when throwing toward his target. Quicker feet and looser overall actions will help defense get better. At the plate, Jaxson is a strong hitter with a quiet set-up and good balance. He creates leverage and has pop in his bat. Hitting will improve with more timing, a better load/stride, and sharper barrel accuracy.
