Trae Bailey is a 2005 middle infielder from Chesapeake, Virginia, who can really hit. He combines with Justin Upton to form a great middle infield for Great Bridge High School. Trae continues to improve his sixty speed (7.55- we have seen him better); he is not a burner, but his hustle and smarts make him a very dangerous base runner. Trae has an incredible desire for the game, and he shows it at every event he attends. He has above average arm strength throwing 82 mph across the infield. He's a natural second baseman with polished tools and quick clean transfers. He will turn a ton of double plays in college. Trae is a right handed hitter with good balance and strong hands. He has a very short bat path with the ability to turn on the inside pitch, and shows very good uncoiling action. He is a game day player who has delivered time and time again at PG events. Trae is always on the Top Prospect teams and delivers against top quality pitchers. He is working on increasing his strength with the same instructor who works with ML players David Wright, BJ Upton, and Michael Cuddyer. Trae is a very good student.

Jimmy Bailey -- Bailey is a wiry strong middle infielder from Virginia with a nice balanced set of tools. He sets up well at the plate with his weight well back and gets good transfer through the ball. Bailey’s swing plane is very good and he shows gap to gap power potential with good bat speed. He hit the ball hard in batting practice and in game situations in Fort Myers. Bailey’s best defensive tool is his arm strength, which is solid. His hands and feet work well together and he appears sure handed. Bailey might not play shortstop at the next level but his tools for second base or third base are fine. Bailey is a solid student off the field as well. He also pitched in Ft Myers, but he's a good 2B prospect.

Aside from being a brave young man (he is deaf), Bailey has a good set of baseball tools that will continue to improve as he adds strength to his 5-10, 165 lb. frame. His bat especially stood out in Chapel Hill. Bailey has quick hands at the plate and consistently pulled the ball hard. As he gets stronger, he should be able to really drive the ball, especially on inside pitches. Defensively, Bailey’s arm grades out just below average on the big league scale and should be plenty playable at third base and second base at the next level. His hands and actions are smooth, too. One thing that would help him the most would be improving his running times, but he can play. Jimmy is a very good student.
