Shane Benes is a 2014 MIF/RHP/3B with a 6-2 185 lb. frame from Town and Country, MO who attends Westminster Christian Academy. Lean athletic build, very good present strength. Quality two-way prospect. 6.78 runner, big time arm strength in the infield, charges the ball well, third base actions and build but tools and athleticism to stay at shortstop at the college level. Right handed hitter, spread stance, late pull pack load, long extended swing, strong hands at contact, flashes big pull power, will have to shorten up against velocity. May be better long-term prospect on the mound. Simple delivery mechanics with good lower half use, stays on line and balanced well, 3/4's arm slot, good extension out front with downhill plane. Fastball topped out at 91 mph, late sink and boring action when down. Hard spin on mid-70's breaking ball, flashed 12/6 shape with good depth, showed feel for pitching in a short look. Very interesting talent we'd like to see more of in the future. Son of former MLB pitcher Andy Benes. Good student, verbal commitment to Missouri.
