Scouting Report
Underclass Games (Sept. 2014) Bennett stands 6-foot-0 180-pounds with a strong athletic build, and room to hold more. At the plate his setup is upright and relaxed. On the pitch he uses a back load, knee lift and stride before exploding his hands inside the ball. He shows next level hand and bat speed with an exit velocity at 91, his path to the ball is short and compact, bat plane is slightly inclined and he uses some extension through contact and a high finish. At 3B he fields the ball out in front, athletic, with smooth actions. His transfer and footwork are clean, arm action is a little long and front side needs to be stronger. Throws from a high 3/4 slot with above average arm strength at 84 mph. He also ran a 7.02 60 showing off his athleticism.
