Benjamin Rabatin: RHP/SS, (2023) Normandy, OH. 5-foot-11, 180-pound athletic frame. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter's best exit velocity was 94 mph. Begins in a balanced stance with a small high load, then uses a toe tap. Bat speed was average, and displayed a flat level swing plane. Athletic in the infield, had a live arm with throws that topped out at 94 mph; has soft hands, a clean exchange, and athletic feet. Athletic from the outfield, he showed plus arm strength by making throws to the infield at velocities up to 94 mph;showed a clean exchange, soft hands, and smooth athletic feet. Movements laterally were athletic and he fields the ball out front. Had a very quick arm action on his throws. Performed well in the 60-yard dash, clocking a speedy time of 6.96. On the mound, showed electric arm speed with a ¾ arm angle and a long arm action. Up-tempo type pitcher and shows easy effort. Showed an athletic balance point. Sat with his fastball at 90-93 mph; had running action and glove side command. Threw a 11/5 curveball (72-74) with plus action. His changeup (77-78) showed fading action and arm side control. His 11/5 slider (76-78) shows plus action.


5-foot-11, 170-pound, average athletic frame, showing a strong lower half. A right-handed pitcher, pounding the zone with a 3 pitch mix. The delivery is simple, building momentum down the mound. The separation is clean, separating at the waist, throwing the glove at the plate, longer inline stride, getting out front on release. The arm action is longer and clean on the backside, working out of a 3/4 slot. The fastball reached 86 mph, with arm side run. The velocity sat at 82-84 mph for his two innings. Mixed in an above average changeup, a swing and miss offering, had hitters off balance. The breaking ball was thrown at 74 mph, more slurve break to it, was thrown for strikes and used as a put-away pitch. Pitch ability is very high, two clean innings with weak contact,  look for big things from this one.
