January 2015
6-foot-2, 175-pound 2-way player. Benson continues to show ability to square baseball consistently. Maintained 77 mph exit velocity off tee since appearance at Fall Unsigned Senior event. Has improved in all facets behind the plate. Consistently held pitches in zone. Shows ability to block. Throwing mechanics were consistently better and stayed on top of baseball creating carry and accuracy. Arm strength jumped 5 mph since October 2014 with top throw of 75 mph to second base. Pop times hovered around 2.09 mark. On the mound showed two different slots. Arm action was shorter than what we have seen in the past; but still maxed out at 83 mph. Lean loose body and will continue to improve.
