01/16/2009 - Under Armour Preseason All America - 2009 James continues to show steady improvements in his baseball abilities. He has improved the most at the plate, now showing near above average abilities and power. He sets in well through a balanced approach and displays strength in his hands. At the event, he was 2 for 4 with a 3B. He does have some mechanical flaws that are hindering him from reaching his full potential at the plate. Hitting grades and power will continue to improve with instruction and adjustments at the plate. Arm strength has also improved as he topped out at 86 mph at the event. He does need to get on a strict long toss program to continue to build more arm strength and raise velocities. Currently, he does project best in the OF for the next level.
