05/28/2019 - 2019 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National South Ben is a pure catch and throw backstop who also will make an impact with the bat. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Runners will not want to test his cannon for an arm (89 mph) with impressive pop times of 1.94. Offensively, he continues to shine with tremendous hitting abilities with near pro level power potential. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (91 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. Ben has the makings of a special type player with the makings of a solid 2020 draft pick.
