  • 1B/RHPPosition Projection

02/06/2022 - All-In Membership - Sugar Land (Houston), TX Ben is a 1B/RHP who will graduate in 2023. Tall frame athletic build, with broad shoulders, and strength throughout. At 1B, he starts with a pre-pitch routine, with efficient feet, and showed ability to turn glove side on his throws to second. Takes good 1st steps to the baseball while creating good fielding angles and showed a good glove angle. Made accurate and on-line throws from a 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity up to 76mph. Showed good feel around the bag and scooped baseballs. On the mound, he has long levers and a projectible from. He works exclusively from the stretch. A clean leg lift and a good rear hip coil starts his delivery. He showed a simple/repeatable delivery and works with good tempo. Throws a FB that sits 70-71mph with plus command, an 11/5 shaped breaking ball that flashes good depth through the strike zone, and a changeup that he throws with FB arm speed. CB was best pitch during his bullpen. At the plate, he hits from an upright and closed stance. Keeps his weight between his knees and is centered at contact. Hit balls to the pull side. With another year and half of growth and development, we foresee this 2-way prospect having a bright future on the baseball field.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
