Jake Waxman: 1B/OF, (2022) out of Oliver Ames, MA. is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound infield prospect. During batting practice, the left-handed hitter displayed an exit velocity of 96 MPH. Waxman begins in a balanced, athletic stance with the hands relaxed. A controlled load and a short stride triggers a swing that takes a direct path through contact. His bat is quick through the zone and finishes balanced. Defensively, Waxman was 74 MPH on his throws across the diamond. As he worked through the ground balls, he showed rhythmic footwork, sure hands, and a clean exchange. He moves well laterally and uses a  ¾ slot to deliver the ball to first. In the 60-yard dash, he recorded a time of 7.6.

6-foot, 215 -pound left-handed hitting first baseman. The feel and approach around the bag is first solid and he moves well enough to handle the position. The glove and feet both work appropriately. He threw 73 mph across the diamond. He ran a 8.18 sixty at the event. The bat has an exit velocity of 93 mph as he is big and strong. The setup is wide in base, using a pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The path is long and flat through contact. Uses a minimal hand load to start the swing. He should hit for power as he enters college. 

Exit Velocity 93 mph

INF Velocity- 73 mph

2/22/20

6-foot, 215-pound left-handed hitting first baseman. There is a great deal to like about the bat as he shows power potential. The path has length to it but it is certainly very strong. He sets up wide and uses a 1-hand finish after contact with the ball. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 88 mph. The feet around the bag at first are playable, and the glove works freely. He threw 73 mph across the diamond. The bat has a serious chance to be a difference maker. The work around the bag at first needs more development.

Tee Exit Velocity- 88 mph

INF Velocity- 73 mph
