Solid frame at 5-foot-8, 165-pounds. Hits from the left side from a slightly open stance. Hands are set back and high, simple glide to stride landing on line, and hands show minimal load. Flashed some hand and bat speed getting through the zone with a level path. High two hand finish, had some natural loft built into the swing, and used the middle of the field during his rounds. Exit velocity was 87 mph. Defensively Becker worked outside the ball on approach, fields it deep, and a clean centered exchange. Full arm circle and showed ability to throw from multiple arm slots. Positional velocity was 79 mph. Ran a 7.16 60.

Jake Becker SS/2B Sherwood (MD) 2021

Solid compact frame standing 5-foot-8, 165-pounds. Left handed hitter that shows solid rhythm and timing. On line stance, small leg lift to stride landing on line, and hands are set back and show some rhythm. Hands are short and quick to the ball, slightly uphill path, and used the middle of the field well flashing some gap to gap potential. Exit velocity was 84 mph. Defensively Becker worked outside the ball on approach, above average hands, and solid glove presentation out front. Quick clean exchange to a short arm action and throws from a low three-quarter arm slot at 79 mph across. Controlled pace on the mound, primarily worked from the stretch, and varied timing on hitters and runners. Worked out of two arm slots both with average effort. Low three-quarter slot where he displayed a fastball that he pounded the strike zone with. It showed some arm side run at times and sat 78-80 mph. The breaking ball from the same slot had a tighter 12/6 break at 65-68 mph. Becker also had feel for a side arm slot with two pitches. The fastball which had similar action as the three-quarter slot and the curveball had more 10/4 slurve action, but got both over from both slots.

Smaller compact frame. Lead-off type hitter with a knack for getting the barrel to the ball. Hands are quick to the ball and he does a nice job of using the whole field. Went 2-for-4 on the day with a double, an RBI, and a run scored. Showed some pull-side pop and is relentless at the plate grinding out AB after AB. Looked really comfortable in the box with good rhythm and displayed some speed on the base paths.
