11/08/2015 - College PREP - Middletown (Hartford), CT Ben is a 2-way player (C/RHP) with a strong build (5'9"/205). With the bat, this RHH shows a balanced setup waiting for his pitch. Barrel delivery is quick through a level path as he squares the ball up showing some pop. Behind the dish, Ben sits in well tracking pitches into a soft mitt with good pocket awareness. Transfer is clean and arm is short/quick to get rid of the ball accurately to 2B - pop times at 2.45. Staying low to throw and gaining more ground toward his target will help to improve his throwing skills behind the plate. On the mound, this RHP has a 3-pitch mix coming from a 3/4 arm slot. He keeps his eyes on the target and repeats well. FB ranges from 69-72 mph while showing some sink. Slider has 9/3 shape with early action. Finishing with more extension and finding a more consistent release point will help to improve the effectiveness on his off-speed. A 2017 grad - Ben has abilities and plenty of time to continue to develop.
