7/18/23

Ben Kent: 3B/RHP, (2028) Dr. Phillips, NL. 6-foot, 160-pound. (60.0 mph bat speed average). (18.0 mph hand speed average). Started in a tall strong stance with a smooth load, then used a short controlled stride. Bat speed is present flashed, has a level swing plane and good extension on his finish. Pull side up the middle approach. While in the infield, made throws at velocities up to 72 mph. In the 60-yard dash, he clocked a time of 7.74.   


11/13/22

2027 RHP/SS Ben Kent was one of the most impressive 2027/2028s in attendance. Long levers and skinny frame right now at 5-foot-10, 130-pounds and there’s lots to like in the left-handed swing. Worked gap-to-gap with the wood bat and it’s an intriguing profile at the plate as he adds strength. Showed arm strength across the diamond at 75mph and was up to 70mph on the mound. Flashed more upside on the positional side and will be a young Newfoundlander who you should hear more from in the coming years.
