Short arm action into a high 3/4 arm slot with a recorded an arm velocity of 80mph. On the mound, throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with clean arm action. Good tempo and demeanor to delivery who showed ability to command 2 pitches. Flashed a FB that sat 72-74mph with some sink and a 10/4 curveball with some depth. A right-handed hitter who hits from an upright and even stance. Showed an aggressive approach at the plate and ability to make hard contact. In live game action, he reached base 3 times and showed pull side pop with a bat exit velocity of 83mph. With 2 years of continued growth and development, we foresee him having the opportunity to play at the next level.

Jesse is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect. At 2B, Jesse is on time with his prep step and creates angles to the ball. He presents a low/early glove, fields in an athletic position, and has range on both sides of the ball. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Jesse starts in an athletic stance, keeps a quiet head, and keeps the barrel on plane with the ball. He is explosive with the back hip and drives the ball gap to gap. On the bump, gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a strong front side. Continuing to work north to south and driving the back leg toward the plate will help him command the bottom part of the strike zone. Jesse is eager to learn and made several adjustments during the week. Jesse will improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
