Official Scouting Report

  • Position Projection

11/01/2014 - 2014 Under Armour Showcase: Futures South Benson stands an impressive 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, comparable to a young Jason Heyward (Atlanta Braves OF). There is some stiffness to his left handed stroke but he is very strong thru contact and the ball reacts very well off his bat. Raw power is ahead of hitting ability now, but he has an idea with route to contact, and stands to develop further as a hitter. Versatile defender, appears to be capable in both OF and and 1B. Actions are much more natural at 1B. 91 mph raw velocity. Overpowers ball on release - flight and arrival aren't the same as exit from hand. Potential for big arm with looser and more controlled stroke. Overall, an exciting combination of body and tools.

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).
