07/17/2017 - College PREP - Minneapolis, MN Ben is a tall, lanky catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path, creating extension. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, hands / feet work well together through a clean transfer / exchange in getting rid of the baseball. Pop times show a range of 2.14-2.20, displaying outstanding arm strength (86 mph velocity) with accuracy / carry on his throws. Hands are soft and he tracks balls well through the receiving process. He uses his body well through the blocking and is a wall behind the plate. Ben has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
