01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament James is a strong R/R catcher who can swing it. As a hitter, he shows good rhythm and gets back into a strong loaded position. Barrel delivery is quick/short to and through the zone. He makes hard contact and drives the ball to the gaps. Behind the dish, Creel sits in well and tracks the ball into his mitt. Quick footwork allow him to get around pitches in the dirt, working to center them off of his chest. He has a quick transfer/release and delivers the ball to 2B in as low as 2.06. All-in-all, power hitting catcher's are in high demand as he will have a bright future in the game.
