New England Insider: Uncommitted Underclass Spotlight - Colton Bender

Colton BenderName: Colton Bender
Position: Catcher
School: Lyman Memorial
Summer Ball: CT Blue Jays Baseball Club
Class: 2017
Ranked: 68th in New England's 2017 class

Scouting Report: Colton has attended two PBR events, showed well both times, is very advanced behind the plate. The frame is a solid catcher’s frame, durable and very flexible. Does a tremendous job of receiving and blocking, gets behind the ball and anticipates very well with balls in the dirt. Pop times were 1.90 to 1.98 and throws are on the bag. Clocked at 73, throws are on the bag. Velocity was  a tick lower from the first event,  has caught a great deal of innings throughout the year, arm needs a rest. At the plate, stance is very quiet, path to the ball is level and keeps the ball from gap to gap. Tremendous prospect, wouldn't be surprised if he was off the recruiting board sometime soon.
