Official Scouting Report

  • OF/RHPPosition Projection

12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) James is an athletic prospect who works hard to continue to improve. He has made strides all over the field and now can impact the game on both sides of the ball. On the mound, he features a mid to upper 70s fastball and a 10-4 breaking curveball. He has a bulldog mentality and works ahead in the count, never giving in. Pitching with more intent will help improve velocity and movement. In the outfield, he works behind the ball with efficient footwork and fields athletically. His hands are out front and he shows a clean exchange while gaining momentum to throw accurately to his target. At the dish, he shows smooth actions to load and launch with balance. He has a level swing with a strong lower half to show gap to gap ability. James is a talented player with lots of upside on the field.

09/23/2018 - College PREP - Oklahoma City, OK James is a solid, athletic RHP/OF who will graduate in 2020. In the OF, he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 72-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to develop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, James has abilities with time and room to progress his game.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
