PG Grade: 9.5
Cooper Benson is a 2019 LHP/OF with a 6-0 190 lb. frame from San Luis Obispo, CA who attends San Luis Obispo HS. Athletic build with good present strength, pretty mature physically. Very fast paced delivery, holds it together well with his athleticism, has deception in his delivery, extended 3/4's arm slot. Steady fastball velocity, topped out at 88 mph, was up to 90 the week before, fastball gets on hitters quickly due to his deception, consistently in the strike zone and works low and arm side well, good running action. Change up is a high quality pitch, maintains arm speed very well. Tends to tip his curveball with a twisty release out front, have seen a better breaking ball in the past. High energy personality who competes and who is fun to watch on the mound.
