Latest Showcase Report
2004 Northeast Top Prospect Showcase   Aug 20, 2004
PG Grade: 9
Shaffer might be the top 2005 player in the Northeast. He is an OF from Athol, MA with a strong 6'1"/196 pound body. He ran an outstanding 6.76 60 during workouts and showed a strong accurate arm with good carry at 87 mph, but he was at 92 mph at the National Showcase at Tropicana. Offensively, he tears the cover off the ball with a controlled, aggressive approach to the strike zone. He can hit for average and shows excellent power potential. He has a great attitude and he is one of the top ranked players in the country. He has great playable tools and he will be a very good draft prospect in 2005. Jake is also a good student.
