RHP Jacob Peters (2021, Southern Union CC) took the ball in his start on Tuesday night in a championship-deciding contest and was brilliant in the six innings he tossed. A natural competitor, Peters opened up working 83-85 mph (2200 rpm) with arm side action did a good job of throwing that pitch on the outer-half of the plate and letting it work back to the zone to right-handed hitters. Settled into more 82-83 mph in the later innings, but his secondary offerings were what made him so successful. Excellent feel for spin on a deceptive, 10/4 slider at 77-79 mph (2400 rpm), and manipulated the speed/shape on it in the later innings at 75-77 mph. Changeup showed the same action as the fastball at 79-80 mph with fade that generated a lot of swings out in front and rollover groundouts versus left-handed hitters. Earned in the win while going 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB & 7 K’s.


It was my first time seeing RHP Jacob Peters (2021, Southern Union CC) since he attended our Top Prospect Games event this past summer. Just like he showed at the event, Peters displayed not only control, but command for all three of his pitches in his start on Friday. Filled up the zone early & often with an 82-84 mph fastball that generated arm side run to both sides of the plate. Showed tight spin and hard, late action to a 76-77 mph slider that has present swing & miss. Even flashed a few changeups that mimicked his fastball movement to left-handed hitters in this outing. Held his velocity efficiently through six shutout innings, and only allowed three hits, two walks and punched out nine.


5-foot-11, 160-pound mature frame. At the plate, the right-handed hitter showed his power in the box with a strong exit velocity of 91 mph. Setup is comprised of athletic stance and a leg kick. Had efficient bat speed and level swing plane. Found lots of barrels with tons of loud contact. Line drive approach. In the infield, had a live arm with throws that topped out at 87 mph; showed smooth feet and sure hands. Had consistent accuracy. Established speed as one of his strengths with an efficient 60 time of 6.91. Advanced on the mound, used a quick arm action and a high ¾ arm angle. Up-tempo type pitcher and shows some effort. Consistent balance point. Displayed a clean finish Threw his fastball 86-87 mph with a max of 88 mph; had running action and glove side command. Throws his 10/4 curveball (78-79) with tight action and around the zone command. Throws his 10/4 curveball (78-79) with command around the zone and tight action. Had fading action and glove side control on his changeup (78-79). He's a winner and knows how to compete. The question is, what does he do best? 


Second time we have seen Peters lately and he continues to impress. Very simple middle of the field approach at the plate with no wasted actions. Does a nice job of getting the hands loaded and the barrel stays inside the ball, creating a compact swing. Has some juice to the middle of the field. Defensive actions are legit with plenty of arm strength and the glove works, stays low to the ground with nice hip flexibility. Impressive on the mound again as the FB was once again up to 84 mph with late arm side action. Showed solid 3 pitch mix with a sharp breaking ball that he could throw for a strike at anytime and a changeup with tumble. The mechanics are clean, easy and athletic. Once again, impressed with the versatility of this ‘21 grad.


On the mound he was ultra impressive with a FB that sat 82-84 mph and seemed to have late rising life during his inning of work. The arm action was clean and the body stayed tight throughout the delivery. Really pounded the strike zone and the breaking ball showed slider type spin at 76- 77 mph. The CH had tumble at 77-78 mph with deceptive arm speed. Really competed on the bump. Nice footwork and nice flexibility in the hips with plenty of arm strength (86 mph) across the diamond. At the plate, started with a slightly open stance and narrow with the feet. Really got his swing started on time and showed a solid middle of the field approach. Very simple approach with a level swing path and nice extension through the swing.
