Ben is a talented baseball player that gives coaches a lot of options defensively. Ben can play both corner infield/outfield positions and play them well. At 3B, Ben plays low and has good range. He creates good hops and shows a plus arm across the infield. In the outfield, Ben has plus speed and takes good angles. On the mound, Ben has a bulldog mentality with the capability to shut down any lineup. He throws a heavy fastball that can run into the upper 80s, with great command. He has developed much confidence in his changeup which has helped him keep hitters off balance very well. Ben throws a CB that he has good command of and can get ahead with it early in counts, while using his SL mainly as an out pitch. Ben is taking a gap year and as he continues to mature and get stronger, he will have a chance to play at a high level.
