Midwest Future Games Profile: Jake Brown from Clayton HS

Midwest Future Game 2013 SLIDE

Jake Brown, C/OF, Clayton HS
One of the top all around athletes of the Preseason Prospect ID Showcase, the solid 6-foot, 195-pound Brown looks to be a polished player for his age.

From the crouch, his top pop time was 1.91 (78-mph), showing quick footwork, a clean exchange and quick release. While catching bullpens, Brown shows ability to stick balls in all parts of the zone; as well as good instincts and body control while blocking.

In the outfield, Brown is aggressive to the ball, taking good routes and playing through the ball. His arm works quickly, with a top throw of 84-mph with some life to it.

Offensively, Brown has sound hitting mechanics. Using a balanced setup with a short stride and smooth load, Brown shows quick hand speed that creates a level, line drive producing swing, with some pull side power.
