09/17/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Indianapolis, IN Jacob is an athletic, OF/RHP who can swing it. Defensively in the OF, he takes active routes as he tracks down and gets behind on fly balls. He fields GB's athletically and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. On the mound, this righty gathers over the rubber with a 3-pitch mix. He commands his FB that sinks down in the zone and throws a SPL that deceives hitters. With the bat, Jacob shows an athletic setup with smooth rhythm to load. He whips his barrel on a direct path fast through the zone and drives pitches on a line from gap to gap. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
