LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2016 National Underclass South Showcase  
James Kirkpatrick is a 2018 RHP with a 6-0 160 lb. frame from Houston, TX who attends Memorial HS. Slender build with lots of room to get stronger, young look in all regards, projects well physically. Low hand delivery with a good body turn, high 3/4's arm slot with good angle to the plate, pretty compact arm action, arm action is clean and low effort, torques his lower half well to help create velocity, maintained his stuff well from the stretch. Fastball was very consistent in the 85-87 mph range, topped out at 88 mph, mostly straight with occasional small arm side running action, threw strikes with his fastball. Good arm speed on his curveball with tight spin and some sharpness, uses curveball as his out pitch after getting ahead with his fastball. Good chance to keep improving with additional strength. Good student.
