James Wood - Prospect Profile

Prospects Live - Mar. 18: "There may not be a higher upside prep bat in the 2021 class than James Wood. His immense 6-foot-5 frame and exemplary hand and bat speed from the left side are rivaled by few."

Michael Dault - Through The Fence Baseball - Mar. 13th: "His power is raw and with the right coaching could really become a complete hitter. Hes fast on the base paths and good in the field."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - Feb. 26th: "Wood might end up at first base and he's 6-foot-7, but he has big raw power and has hit everywhere."

R.J. Anderson - CBS Sports - Feb. 15th: "At the plate, he's blessed with (predictably) well-above-average raw power. Most abnormally tall hitters have strikeout problems because of their long levers; Wood does about as good of a job as someone his size can at keeping his swing compact."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 26th: "While Wood has proven to be a strong center fielder, his size will continue to bring questions about whether hes better off in a corner, so continuously proving himself in center will be necessary."

Ian Smith - Prospects 365 - Nov. 8: "He gives you a hulking 6-foot-7 frame with high level athleticism and a frame that seems as though it will age well. Above average actions in the field with plus arm strength but his value is truly coming from his bat that has stood out among his peers this summer."
