COACHES COMMENTS:

Jake is a hardworking switch-hitting LHP/1B/OF with an incredibly high ceiling. Offensively, Jake competes very well. He has an aggressive approach early in the count, doing a great job of tracking pitches and staying short to a baseball. Jake is one of those guys that looks even more comfortable with two strikes on him, letting baseballs get deeper in the zone and choking up off the knob. Defensively, Jake handles the bag very well at 1B. Despite his tall, lanky body type, Jake makes up for it by staying in his legs when moving side-to-side for groundballs as well as when receiving putouts. Jake is rather new to the outfield but gives you options at either corner of the grass. He does a superb job getting behind baseballs and uses his arm talent well when throwing to bases. On the mound, Jake is an absolute difference-maker. He refuses to get rattled on the bump as there is no situation that is too big for the left-hander. Jake truly commands all five of his pitches(FB, CH, CU, CB, SL) for strikes, regardless of what the count is. As his body continues to fill out and develop, Jake will be prepared to help a top program at the next level.
