    Jew won MVP of the summer New England Collegiate Baseball League in 2017 and played in the Cape Cod League last summer. He returned to UC Santa Barbara this spring with added power and led the Gauchos to a Big West Conference title. Jew’s 11 home runs at the end of the regular season topped the nine homers he hit as a freshman and sophomore combined. Jew has plus speed in center field and projects to stick at the position. He has an average arm, good instincts and is fast in every direction. He uses his plus speed effectively on the basepaths and successfully stole 20 bases in 23 tries during the regular season. Previously more of a slap hitter, Jew began swinging to do damage this season and showed average power. His swings and misses increased with his power spike, but he has enough feel to hit to project as a .240 hitter, which is enough with his power, speed and ability to play center field.
