04/29/2012 - College PREP - Providence, RI James is a tall and lanky RHP/SS who graduates in 2014. On the mound, he delivers from a high 3/4 arm slot, and short/quick arm action. His FB tops out at 79 mph and is thrown for strikes. He stays compact and shows smooth rhythm. Working on throwing a CH and smoothening out his finish will improve mound effectiveness. Defensively, he presents his glove early/our front and he has sure hands. If he can play more on the balls of his feet, be more aggressive and play thru the ball to his target, defensive abilities can improve. Offensively, he shows a tall/open setup, short stride and good balance. He swings fast bat-speed, and gets his lower 1/2 thru creating extension thru the ball. Letting the ball travel and working on his timing with his front foot will help hitting abilities to improve.
