12/27/2016 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 James is an athletic and coachable middle infielder, who showed great baseball instincts and a passion for the game in his time at Pirate City. Defensively, he read the ball off the bat immediately and took great 1st steps to where the baseball was hit. Footwork was smooth and efficient, as he worked directly to the baseball with ease, then fielded with low hips and hands that were presented out in front. Arm plays well for the position also, as his throws were made quickly, with a clean exchange from multiple arm angles. Offensively, he showed fine plate discipline and good rhythm with his hands, as they worked on a direct path to the baseball with a controlled barrel. Approach was not only patient, but mostly line drive oriented, as he sprayed the ball to all fields. As a whole, James is a very physically tooled player, who with continued hard work and growth, will become a special prospect who can compete at the next level.
