01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) James is an athletic and talented 2025 2-way prospect with high energy. At 2B, James presents a low/early glove, works from the ground up, and has a clean exchange. He has good footwork on double plays and makes accurate throws. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, build arm strength through his throwing program, and improve his first step to the ball. At the plate, James starts in an open stance, has a simple load with his hands, and keeps the barrel on plane. He's aggressive on the fastball and competes each at bat. He needs to continue to create backside drive with his lower half, attack the inside part of the ball, and keep his head down at contact. James was supposed to pitch as well but he had a slight arm injury prior to that appearance. James is a hard worker, with tremendous ability, and we hope to see his progress in the future.
