6/21/22

Brody James: 

 

Athletic frame at 5’8” 160, above average runner 7.36. Balanced set up at the plate with the hands next to ear, some pre-pitch bat movement. Simple stroke using a toe-tap in load. Flashes solid bat-to-ball skills with a line-drive generating swing. Should have potential to drive well to all fields as the frame adds mass. Clean, athletic movements in the infield. Gets around the ball well with feet. Could benefit from a more quiet glove, but trusts his hands well. Strong arm from infield as well, 84 INF Velo. Demonstrates command of the baseball on the mound. Aggressive movements during delivery, particularly the leg lift. Employs use of both fastball and curveball and can throw both for strikes.
