Scouting Report

2017 New Jersey State Games (July 26-27, 2017)
Jachera has a lean, wiry, athletic build at 6-foot-3 170-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 6.70-seconds and recorded an exit velocity of 82 MPH. One of the best overall athletes from the event. Offensively – starts in a wide, neutral stance with hands above back shoulder. Uses a foot stride to start swing, hands load down and back with some fluidity. Quick hands and hips through the zone with some lift to swing and finish. Finishes balanced with a firm, stiff front leg. Defensively – took reps from the outfield. Throws topped at 85 MPH with backspin and carry. Short, quick arm action, ball jumps out of hand with firmness.
