1/4/14 - The very athletic Benninghoff stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 175 pounds.  He starts with a controlled vertical knee lift then explodes at the plate utilizing simple, fast arm action and a ¾ slot.  His fastball ranged from 83-86 mph.  Benninghoff’s 74-75 breaking ball has late, sharp break to it – definitely an at-bat ender as he learns to harness it.  He also threw a 73-76 change-up.  He was the top pitching prospect at the event among a very strong group of underclassmen pitchers.
1/4/14 - The very athletic Benninghoff stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 175 pounds.  During the infield drills he showed soft hands, quick footwork and quick exchanges.  He showed a strong accurate arm and had the top infield throwing velocity at 84 mph.  Hitting-wise he starts with a balanced set-up and wide stance.  He uses a simple stride and no hand load.  He has a short bat path, compact swing and bat speed, not common characteristics for long-armed hitters. He repeatedly drove the ball in the middle of the field.  His top exit velocity was 86 mph.  He projects as a 2-way player at the major college level and was the top overall prospect in the event among a group of very talented underclass prospects.
