08/02/2014 - Interactive Video Program - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Ben is a young, 2-way player as a SS/RHP. At SS, he hustles into a square fielding position. He gathers well, has a quick release, and works in-line toward his target at 1B. With the bat, Ben shows a closed setup with patience. He lets the ball travel into the zone and hits it where it's pitched. On the mound, this RHP throws a FB & CH from a high 3/4 arm slot. He gets good glove side lead and works in-line toward the plate. He finishes complete with extension on his finish. Overall abilities will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Lower fielding position 2. Footwork/agility 3. Avoid glove flip Offense 1. More lower 1/2 drive 2. Level out swing path Pitching 1. Arm strength 2. Arm action
