04/30/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Charlottesville, VA Benjamin is an athletic C/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Behind the plate, he displays active footwork as he uses his body to center pitches off his chest. He tracks, catches around the ball and fires strong throws down to 2B. On the mound, this righty is a strike thrower. He gets to a balance point, delivers with a clean arm action and works in line towards his target. With the bat, Benjamin presents a square/balanced setup. He drives his lower 1/2 and whips his barrel quickly through the zone as he creates hard contact with each pitch. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
