06/30/2019 - College PREP - Binghamton, NY James is a strong, solid, 2-way player who plays OF and 3rd base. In the OF, James is aggressive to the ball, feet are efficient, and he takes proper angles. He covers ground, makes plays, and throws with good direction to his cut off man. Fielding lower, playing more through, and throwing on a downhill plane will help OF skills get better. At 3B, James has active feet, and good range to the baseball. He makes plays, fields squarely, and throws with consistency across the diamond. Looser body actions and playing more through the ball will help abilities at 3B improve. Offensively, James is a strong hitter with a square/athletic set-up. He has fast bat speed and hits with strength to the pull side. Hitting can improve with a more still head, better timing, and shorter swing path.
