BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Yet another of the toolsy-but-raw outfielders in the Philadelphia system, James is on the wrong end of that spectrum; his upside is fading rapidly. He was passed over in the 2011 Rule 5 draft and followed that up with another unimpressive performance in the minors. Now at 24 years old, he is looking at a potential repeat of Double-A, quickly moving from what could be to what couldíve been.
2012 Toolsy and with a ways to go, Jiwan James might as well be the mold for Phillies draftees, but he mostly held serve last season.
2011 In terms of raw speed, James is a 70 runner, but he has yet to figure out how to run the bases. He also has a power hitterís body but has yet to hit for power. Thatís what happens when you pick the toolsiest pitcher left in the 22nd round of the 2007 draft, then turn him into a center fielder. James' tools have impressed scouts, but it will take plenty of patience before he learns how to use them. His potential was fully on display during a 24-game hitting streak (which ended in July), but his overall season line demonstrates how far he has to go.
