J.P. Taravella Pitcher Jack Sinclair Signs First Pro Contract


By: Matt Rothman 

After a run with J.P. Taravella and the University of Central Florida, Jack Sinclair is officially a member of the Washington Nationals after signing his first professional contract for $100,000. 

While Sinclair has had many people help him along the way, including friends and family, he says that his coaches were one of the biggest reasons he got to this point. 

“They have helped me become the player I am today,” Sinclair said. “Taking things from each of them makes me the player I am today.”

Sinclair pitched for three seasons with the Trojans under Head Coach Alan Clark. He recorded seven wins during his last two years with JPT and had a save as a sophomore. Sinclair then went on to pitch for UCF and Greg Lovelady. He won 12 games with an ERA of 1.35 as a junior. 

Currently, Sinclair is in West Palm Beach with many other draft picks and training at the Nationals spring training facility.
