02/09/2020 - College PREP - Douglasville (Atlanta), GA Ben is a lean, athletic 1B/LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. In the field, he shows efficient footwork and fields in a square position. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate and on-line to his target. He is a quality receiver showing proper footwork around the bag. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and extends through his release. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 62 mph. Breaking ball sits from 53-58 mph with 2/8 break. Changeup sits from 53-54 mph as he maintains arm speed with tailing action. Long tossing to build up his arm strength can help him improve as a pitcher. With 4 years to further develop, Ben has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
