2023 MLB DRAFT: Jake Brown, LHP — Sulphur (LA)

June 30, 2023

Jake Brown was a two-way standout in high school at Louisiana, but has seen the majority of his accomplishments come on the mound, including winning a gold medal as a member of Team USA.

FSS Event History: Brown has a lengthy history at FSS events as a member of Team Louisiana, but has also participated in several national and signature events, including last year’s Main Event, where he drew one of the prestigious starts at Fenway Park.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 116

Joe Doyle on Brown:

Projection and strike-throwing ability here really stand out. Brown really came on strong late in the summer of 2022, impressing for Team USA. The slider is the bread and butter here with depth and sweeping action, a real bat-missing weapon against left-handed hitters. Brown hasn’t yet seen a velocity bump. He’ll usually sit 89-91 over extended outings, touching 93 at his best. He projects a crafty southpaw who commands the baseball well and has the ability to manipulate shape. If scouts see a velo pop in the near future, he could sneak into the early parts of day two.
