2019 Scout Day: Canes Baseball Club - Sneak Peek

Positional Prospects

Ben Zink OF / RHP / Northmont, OH / 2022

Body Type: 6-foot-2, 180-pound strong, athletic frame with still some room to add.
Swing Mechanics: Balanced stance. Uses a leg kick for timing as barrel flows through bat tip movement.
Hit: Smooth load into an aggressive stroke. Impressive body control/barrel awareness with the amount of intent in his swing. Can spray it or turn on the ball with authority. Looked dynamic at times in his round.
Power: 87 mph exit velocity. Obvious athleticism in the box. Hands are fast to the baseball and heavy through contact. High follow here with advanced natural tools and the ability to drive the ball with authority. Do it all type.
Offensive Projection: Run producer.
Run: 7.36 60-yard dash.
Field: Ball skills are behind other tools but he’s athletic enough to grow into an adequate defender out there. Athleticism/Arm plays at all three spots with present ball skills forecasting him in the corners presently.
Throw: 82 mph from the outfield. Shouldn’t be surprised after his performance on the mound that arm plays as a big tool out there. Loose/fluid arm action with already above average strength and more to come.
Defensive Projection: Wouldn’t completely rule out CF but for now looks like a corner guy.
Additional Comments: Zink makes a compelling argument for the most well-rounded/highest ceiling prospect on the Canes roster. Athletic kid with two-way potential. Type of prospect that could easily make his way on to D1 coaches radar.
