PG Grade: 6.5
Jake Staton is a 2008 RHP/1B with a 6'0'', 180 lb. frame from Escondido, CA, who attends Cathedral Catholic HS. Staton has a good lean and athletic frame with present strength. On the mound he throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a long and loose arm and has good extension on his finish. Staton mixes in three pitches with a deceptive delivery and full hip turn. His fastball topped out at 80 mph, while his CB was 69 mph and his changeup was 66 mph. Staton throws all three pitches for strikes working both side of the plate, and he gets ahead of hitters. He maintains his arm speed on his changeup with sink and run. Staton's pitchability and command give him upside on the mound. Defensively he has arm strength from first base with good footwork and hands around the bag. He hits from an open stance with a quiet approach, and uses a line drive swing plane. He uses all fields and hits solid line drives when he keeps his weight back. Staton is also a good student.
