05/07/2017 - College PREP - College Station, TX James is a lean SS/C who will graduate in 2020. At SS, he displays clean actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper angles but needs to attack the ball more and play through with his body. Glove action is soft but will benefit by presenting more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.50 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone but needs to widen his stance and needs to utilize his body more through the blocking process. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, James has abilities with a lot of room to progress his game.
