LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2015 Northeast Top Prospect Showcase  
Ben Gilliland is a 2016 RHP/OF with a 6-3 188 lb. frame from Middletown, CT who attends Middletown. Extra-large, athletic build with broad shoulders, long limbs and a well-proportioned frame with present strength throughout. Ran a 7.53 60-yard dash. Primary right-handed pitcher, remains short and compact through the backside while getting to high three-quarter release point. Balanced delivery, hands stay close to body throughout delivery and does a nice job of hiding the ball from hand break. Gets on top of fastball nicely and generates downhill plane, topped at 84 mph mostly true with occasional life, filled up the strike zone to either side of plate. Pitched off fastball, but mixed nicely and showed feel. Curveball had 11-5 shape at 72 mph and showed a solid changeup with downward life from same arm slot. Arm strength also plays from the outfield, takes short steps to the ball and uses a crow hop to gain momentum into release. Comes out of hand clean with excellent strength and consistent accuracy.
