2017 Southeast Top Prospect Showcase  
Adam Benefield is a 2018 LHP with a 6-4 170 lb. frame from Flowery Branch, GA who attends Gainesville HS. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and a lean, projectable build with long limbs and room to fill throughout moving forward. Primary lefthanded pitcher, worked exclusively out of the stretch with nice rhythm and tempo to delivery. High leg lift and gathers well at balance while working with a lose and easy arm action through the back prior to an extended three-quarters release. Strides on line towards the ball and gets over front side while incorporating lower half well. Hides ball well and gets on hitters quickly; topped out at 83 mph and pitched to both sides of the plate with occasional running life. Curveball shows 2-8 shape and throws it for strikes up to 73 mph, mixed well and kept hitters off balance while also flashing a changeup at 75 mph. Able to induce contact early in the count and challenge within zone. Very good student.
