04/14/2019 - College PREP - Costa Mesa (Los Angeles), CA Ben is an OF/LHP prospect who will graduate in 2022. In the field, Ben shows efficient footwork and takes good angles to the ball. He fields the ball out in front with soft hands and makes a clean exchange. He throws from a 3/4 angle and works to keep his throws accurate to his target. Ben can improve defensively by long tossing to build up his arm strength. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a square stride. He takes a level swing and hits against a strong front side, leading to consistent contact to all fields. Working a smoother load into his swing can help Ben improve as a hitter. On the mound, Ben gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He stays inline towards the plate and finishes with a controlled landing. Ben shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 68mph. Breaking ball sits from 63-64mph with 1-7 break. Ben can improve as a pitcher by taking a longer stride. With three more years to develop, Ben has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
