Standout 2020 Infielders
November 9, 2017
After a busy and productive fall season with travel all across the country to see some of the best amateur/underclass talent, On the Hunt begins, this week, to look back at some of the standouts. This week, six 2020 infielders take centerstage as projectable, future college standouts. Two of the players on the list made commitments in the last few days, while the other four show all the skills necessary to become contributors at the next level. States represented are Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Jalon Mack SS / Jesuit, TX / 2020
Mack is a physical, 5-foot-11, 170-pounded switch-hitting infielder who is going to have a chance to hit for power from both sides of the plate. Featuring an easy set-up from both sides, Mack starts with his weight on his back leg in a slight crouch with his hands held by the ear. He loads back with a reverse toe tap that allows his hands to work, loosely, down and back before whipping them through the zone on a level plane with a high, loose finish. His quick hands and strong wrists are able to work freely because of his balanced lower-half, and as he continues to mature, he should develop more strength to aid his already 90-plush exit velocities from both sides. In the field, Mack showcases smooth hands that allow him to field balls confidently with solid footwork that will allow him to play any infield position in the future. Overall, Mack’s ability to control the bat from both sides of the plate should make him a player that coaches are going to want to get out and see in the future.
