01/27/2013 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI Xavier is a tall, lanky OF that will graduate in 2014. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work on getting behind balls more, play through, and improve foot quickness to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Benton shows a balanced setup with rhythm. Hands are loose and he makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Xavier has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
