2/20/22

Ben Slanker: OF/1B, (2023) Canfield, OH. Ohio Commit, 6-foot-1, 195-pound. At the plate, Slanker had a max exit velocity of 100 mph. (72.7 mph bat speed average). (20.8 mph hand speed average). Begins in an athletic active stance with a controlled load, then uses a quick leg kick. Bat speed is quick, has a loose uphill swing plane and good extension on his finish. Solid throwing from the outfield, he displayed power in his arm with throws up to 89 mph;has a natural exchange, soft hands, and consistent feet. Movements laterally were athletic and he fields the ball out front. Had a high ¾ slot with a loose arm action. The athletic recruit showcased his speed with a sub-seven 60 time of 6.94.

7/28/21

Silky smooth mover in the box with obvious athleticism to patterns. When he gets on plane he absolutely lands on baseballs. The upside/tools here aren't hard to see. Upper 70s batpseed, 20+gs of rot acc, and mid 90s EV. One of the more highly followed bats in the state. Defensively, the arm continues to progress into a big time tool as he tossed it with 86mph strength to home plate. How foot speed progresses will likely determine future destination as he shows solid ball skills with natural/function athleticism.
