Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

10/28/2015 - Under Armour SoCal Classic, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Benner is a coachable player who has a ton of upside. This athletic backstop sits in well with a solid base and good sway. He is quick laterally and centers pitches off of his chest, deadening the ball. Throws to 2B are on the bag as he will control the running game. At the plate, Nicholas has an athletic setup with quiet/simple actions. He works to hit against a firm front side and engage his lower 1/2. He barrels the ball up and drives it on a line. More power potential is there with more extension through contact. Nicholas brings a positive attitude to the field every day and is willing to make the necessary adjustments to his game to take him to the next level. He works hard day in and day out.

08/09/2015 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI Nicholas is a talented switch-hitting catcher who will turn some heads. Behind the dish, he sits in well with flexion and athletic actions. He is quick laterally and deadens pitches in the dirt off of his chest. Transfer/exchange is quick/smooth as he fires strong throws on the bag (impressive pop times os 1.93). Runners will not want to test his arm. At the plate, although skilled from both sides he shows more naturally from the right. He has a solid base with fluid rhythm to load. Hands are quick as he whips the barrel with speed to and through the zone. He connects with pop and drives the ball the the gaps. Benner is a strong/athletic catcher who will play at a high level.

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).
