12/27/2014 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 James is a long limbed LHP/1B that will graduate in 2017. On the hill, he shows a good mound presence as he's looking to compete. FB topped out at 77 MPH with his fastball and showed an ability to mix in a SL & CH. He competed against hitters, hid the ball well, and held runners on. His SL was his best off-speed pitch showing 2/8 shape. He will be able to mix all 3 pitches in any count. Greater lower half drive and more front side extension will also enhance pitchability. In the box, he showed a closed setup with good balance in his setup and launch. Swing path is level to and through the zone as he creates consistent contact. A skilled player - James will throw strikes and give his team a chance every time he toes the rubber.
