2/23/14 – Bennett is a 6-foot-3, 225-pound LHP.  Bennett was 80-83 with his fastball and had slight cut.  He showed a 2/8 shaped curveball with a sharp late break at 76-78 MPH and showed good feel for his change-up at 74-75 MPH.  He throws with a ¾ release and has loose arm action with regular arm speed.   Bennett lands in line to his target and finishes in an athletic position.
2/23/14 - Bennett is a 6-foot-3, 225-pound 1B.  Bennett, a lefty, has quick feet and soft hands with a loose high 3/4 release.  The lefty has a positional velo of 80 MPH.  At the plate, Bennett has little wasted movement.  He produces good bat speed with and exit velo of 89 MPH.  He ran a 4.94 home-to-first. 
6/19/13: Bennett is a physically imposing 6-foot-3, 215-pound two-way player who showed to be effective on the mound and have some power at the plate. On the mound, Bennett didn’t seem to have his best stuff but was able to dig deep and effectively change speeds and have his pitches move to record outs, especially ground ball outs.  His 76-79 mph fastball was heavy with good run and sink action, thrown on both sides of the plate. He also threw a 12-to-6 breaking ball (67-68 mph), which when he staying on top of it and released it out in front produced quite a few swings and misses and ground balls. Bennett also threw a 64-mph change up at neat fastball arm speed with some arm side run. At the plate, Bennett has a smooth load with a slight tap on his stride for timing. He uses an explosive lower half and strong hands to create fast bat speed through the zone with pull side power. At first base, Bennett moves well around the bag, with sure hands and good body control while turning double plays.


2/18/13: Bennett is a strong-bodied 6-foot-3, 215-pound two-way player. At the plate, Bennett impressed with his power. Bennett used his strong lower half and quick hand speed through the zone to create barrel whip, driving the ball with some pull side power; the ball jumps off of his bat. Bennett also posted one of the top exit velocities of the event at 88-mph off the bat.  In the field, Bennett shows good footwork around first base while turning double plays, with accurate throws. On the mound, the left handed throwing Bennett comes from a high ¾ arm slot with regular effort. His fastball was thrown in the 75-77 mph range, topping at 78-mph with late arm side run. He also showed a 65-66 mph breaking ball with good arm speed, but the pitch stayed up in the zone. When he followed through on his the breaking ball it was much more effective. Bennett also threw a 69-71 mph change up with some arm side run and fade.
