02/23/2020 - National Tryout Plus - Waco, TX Benjamin is an athletic and strong 2020 OF prospect. In the OF, Benjamin is on time with his prep step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and has a good first step. He works behind fly balls, he has a clean exchange, and he makes accurate throws. At the plate, Benjamin swings with intent and he looks to drive the ball over the batters eye. He rotates his backside, he hits off a firm front leg, and he has a direct swing path. Benjamin is highly motivated and he continues to improve.

12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Benjamin continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with on line carry (88 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. He has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

07/16/2019 - College PREP - Highland Park (DFW), TX Benjamin is an athletic OF/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2020. In the field, Benjamin shows quick footwork and attacks the ball aggressively. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them accurate with carry through his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a short stride. He gets into his load and takes a direct swing path, leading to solid contact to all fields. On the mound, Benjamin gathers over the rubber and works with a loose arm. He extends through his release and finishes square to the plate. Benjamin shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 80mph. Breaking ball sits from 64-66mph with 10-4 break. Changeup sits from 66-68mph as he throws with deceptive arm speed.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
