    Meggs is a coach's son and plays like it, skilling it up in West Coast college baseball parlance. His dad Lindsey is Washington's head coach, and Jack helped the Huskies to a regional berth in 2016 when he led the nation with 23 sacrifice bunts and played stellar defense in center field. He's an average runner and defender whose instincts help his tools play up. Offensively he has learned to ambush mistakes and show some more power but it's still 30 power on the 20-80 scale, with bat control his best hitting attribute.
