Daniel Benjamin is a 2005 C/OF/P from Hoover, Alabama. He has a lean 5'11",150 lb body that is still maturing. Behind the plate he shows solid defensive work with a strong arm at 77mph and 1.90-2.09 pop times. His throws were online and straight with some carry life. He has a good setup, with soft hands and also works well with pitchers. Offensively he hits from a narrow base and straight stance. He shows a heavy weight shift into contact with a linear hitting style. He uses a short load into a nice approach with good rotation through contact and finishes high, though his swing plane is more line drive in nature. He shows a nice controlled plate presence and is a contact hitter with some pop in his bat. Daniel is a nice '05 backstop that needs some added muscle in order to achieve his potential.
