Jake Colavito is a 2008 1B/3B with a 6'3'', 210 lb. frame from Schenectady, NY who attends Guilderland HS. He has a big framed, strong build that is physically mature. He'll have to work hard to keep in condition and maintain his body life. Colavito's tool is his power bat. He has very strong hands and develops very good late bat speed through the ball with an aggressive attack on the ball. Colavito has a big wrap to start his swing and has a "Big Dipper" approach in his swing with lots of pull and loft to his swing. He would benefit from more lower half turn in his swing and tends to hit around the ball with his hands. The raw tools are there for a dangerous power hitter, though. Colavito is well balanced around first base with soft hands. He is an excellent student.
