Cape Cod- With plus speed, a plus arm and above average raw power James has top round tools. After a .308/.339/.423 slash in 52 at-bats as a true freshman in 2020, James slashed .264/.354/.456 for the national champions. At 6-foot-3, 195 pounds, there is plenty of strength and quick-twitch athleticism to forecast a bright future. At the plate, his balance and extension are good and his bat speed is obvious. However, to turn those qualities into production, he must iron out some timing issues with his swing and become more competitive against spin. Once it all comes together, James will likely be considered in the top rounds. At this point, it's high risk with an everyday major league infielder as the potential ceiling. He was a 2021 draft-eligible by age, but went unselected. A disappointing Cape season (.159/.274/.254) may have dampened his spot on area scouts' follow lists for the time being, but look for James to continue his development and become a Top 100 talent in next summer's draft.

2021 MLB DraftAfter a .308/.339/.423 slash in 52 at-bats as a true freshman in 2020, James slashed .264/.354/.456 for the national champions and has obvious tools. He shows plus to better arm strength and is a 70-grade straight line runner with 60 times in the 6.5s. At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, there is plenty of strength and quick-twitch athleticism to forecast a bright future. At the plate, his balance and extension are good and his bat speed is obvious. However, to turn those qualities into production, he must iron out some timing issues with his swing. Once it all comes together, James will likely be considered in the top rounds, whether it's this July or next. At this point, it's high risk with an everyday major league infielder as the potential ceiling.

After a .308/.339/.423 slash in 52 at-bats as a true freshman in 2020, James got off to a slow start in the batter’s box during the first three games of the Showdown. He managed to collect his first and only hit during game three on Monday against Texas Tech. Performance scouts with little background on the second-year freshman who is draft eligible this July may run away from this prospect at present, but James’ tools are obvious. He shows plus-to-better arm strength in the game and is a 70-grade straight line runner with sixty times in the 6.50s. At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds there is plenty of strength and quick-twitch athleticism to forecast a very bright future. At the plate his balance and extension are good and his bat speed is obvious. However, to turn these qualities into production James must iron out the timing issues with his swing that he showed this weekend. In my mind, it’s a matter of when, not if. Once it all comes together, James will likely be considered in the top rounds, whether it’s this July or next.
