PG Grade: 6.5
Jesse is not a big body frame guy, but he plays real big. Listed as a primary pitcher he has a 3/4 arm release with decent velocity and sink on his fastball. His breaking ball is a good one with excellent rotation and low 70s velocity. We really like his defensive infield skills - he has very good hands and a strong arm. He runs pretty good too. If he hits, he can play at a very high level. He's an "05" so he's got a couple years to settle in as a pitcher or player.
