Jessica Iwata NPF Draft Profile

Jessica Iwata, Senior, Shortstop/Second Base, Hawaii

Throws: Right, Bats: Right



Jessica Iwata is a proven offensive threat with career numbers to back it up. In three years at Hawaii, she boasts a .373 batting average, .455 on base percentage (.503 in 2012) and almost 200 hits. Her slugging percentage of .711 is a byproduct of her 47 home runs and 35 doubles. Iwata also has 159 RBI’s in her time as a Rainbow. In 2012, her strikeout total dropped to 15 in 150 at bats.


Final Projection:

A power hitting middle infielder will get noticed in a hurry, and Iwata would make a nice addition to a professional club. Designated hitters don’t usually come from the middle infield, and her career .919 fielding percentage could cause concern.
