01/13/2017 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament James is a talented young prospect at the premium catching position. He has the thick, durable build to handle the physical rigors behind the plate, and he looks to have the leadership qualities and baseball IQ to excel at that spot. He throws very accurately to the bases with an excellent tempo and a very good overall feel for the position. His receiving skills are advanced and he is solid on balls in the dirt. At the plate he finds the barrel with consistency with a good swing plane despite some length to the stroke. He is most comfortable on balls on the inner half that he can turn on to best utilize his present strength. He also shows advanced strike zone judgement. Look for James to make an impact at the next level as a complete all-around catcher.
