Latest Showcase Report
2004 World Showcase   Jan 10, 2004
PG Grade: 8.5
Gallagher is a good all around athlete with a projectable body. He showed us excellent arm strength from the outfield, throwing 87 mph with an easy, low effort arm stroke but he only threw in the low 80’s off the mound. We’d keep an eye on Gallagher as a pitcher, though. At the plate, Gallagher hits from an open stance and never really gets closed off. He takes a full hack with good bat speed and some loft to his swing. It looks like he’s trying to get the ball in the air and he hit a couple well in one of the games. Gallagher is an outstanding student who has signed to go to Duke. It’s probably not coincidental that Duke is well known for encouraging 2-way players to both pitch and hit. James is a very good athlete with a lot of MLB type skills.
