07/22/2014 - College PREP - Washington DC, MD James is a thin, athletic, 2-way player with good skills. In the INF, James is a sure handed player, with efficient footwork who fields from the right. He has good body control, he plays through the ball properly, and gains momentum to his target. James throws with good accuracy, and can improve by starting lower and shortening/strengthening his arm. In the OF, James reads the ball off the bat well, his feet are playable, and he fields out front. He has sure hands, square up to his target, and delivers the ball with accuracy. OF skills will improve if James can quicken his exchange and add arm strength. Offensively, James has an athletic setup, a proper load, and good bat speed. He stands in well, has quick hands, and puts the bat on the ball consistently. Hitting can improve with more direct hands to the ball, leveling off his swing, and letting the ball travel deeper into the zone.
