03/26/2023 - National Showcase - Manalapan, NJ James is an OF/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2026. Medium frame lean build with strength present and plenty of room to add throughout. In the OF, showed active/efficient feet and ability to cover ground in all directions. Aggressive routes enable him to create good fielding angles as he works through the ball. Showed ability to flip his hips and go get balls. Throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with on-line throws into infield. On the mound, this right-handed pitcher has a good rear hip coil and keeps his eyes on target. He gathers over rubber and rotates to target. Attacks hitters with his FB that sits 68-69mph. Mixed in an 11/5 shaped breaking ball that he throws for strikes, a slider from the same window as CB, and a changeup that he throws with FB arm speed. CB was best pitch during his bullpen. A right-handed hitter, starts with an athletic and square stance. Has an on-time glide step, with a small hand load, and tracks pitches well. A direct barrel path enables him to hit balls consistently to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 76mph during BP.
