BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Moving to the bullpen helped 6-foot-6 lefty James Adkins, a supplemental first-rounder in 2007, add a tick to his 88-91 mph fastball and boost his strikeout rate above one per inning, though his walk rate remained problematic.
2010 A supplemental first-rounder from 2007 who was seen as a polished college lefty, James Adkins is shaping up as a bust, all too hittable, and lacking in a true out pitch.
2009 A polished southpaw out of the University of Tennessee who was chosen as a supplemental first-rounder in 2007, Adkins fared well in the Midwest League. His promotion to the Cal League didnít go so smoothly; Adkins was knocked around a bit, though he was a bit hit-unlucky. His fastball sits in the upper 80s, but features heavy sink and generates ground balls. Some consider his slider among the best in the system, but others say he lacks a true plus offering. Heís a back-end starter unless he improves his secondary stuff.
2008 As if attempting to prove that they scout more than just high-ceiling high school arms, the Dodgers spent a 2007 supplemental first-round pick on Atkins, your classic polished college left-hander. Atkins pitched very well at Low-A after signing, but that's not a huge shock as he was older than most of the league, has quality off-speed stuff, and throws strikes. He also has a fastball that rarely gets out of the 80s, causing scouts to question whether or not he has enough pure stuff to remain effective as he moves up the ladder.

2009-06-09 14:30:002009 Draft CoverageLogan White is certainly my favorite character around the draft, because he's always there to throw a surprise. I never understood the people that thought of Aaron Miller as an outfielder -- he could never hit lefties, he had too long a swing, etc. But as a pitcher he caught on quickly, and he has a real nice chance to succeed. White is a sucker for lefties with good stuff, as Elbert and Kershaw and James Adkins and plenty of others could tell you. (Bryan Smith)
