PITCHING: Ben is a big LHP that just pounds the strike zone with every pitch he has. Ben has incredible run on his fastball and his change up is outstanding and can throw them both for strikes when he need to. Ben’s slider has gotten more consistent and is a good out pitch to LHH. Ben has worked hard this past offseason to clean up his mechanics and use his kinetic chain better make him more efficient and explosive. Ben has seen a jump in his velo from last year and his breaking ball is harder with tighter spin, this has allowed him to throw more strikes with his breaking ball to LHH and RHH.
