WP - Bennett Askew is a 2005 RHP/1B from Shawnee Mission HS in KS. At 6 foot 7 and 250 pounds, Askew has an XL frame with lots to work with. He showed a classic high hands style and a hard stride into the ball in BP which generated some big power to left field. His swing and throw actions are low effort and easy but overall good looking. On the mound is where his largest potential appeared to be showing an effortless 80-82mph fastball that could easily end up in the upper 80’s if he grows into the 6’7 frame and generates a bit more arm speed. His curve was mostly in the 70-71mph range and the change-up was his best at 72-74 with some deception. He is a must-follow this year for College Coaches.

Bennett Askew: Askew is an extra, extra big young man at 6-7, 260. He has a very balanced, on-line and athletic delivery and a smooth, easy arm stroke. Askew gets out front well with good extension and creates some life an 80-83 mph fastball. His curveball is more of a roller at 68-71 mph but he has the ability to improve this pitch or go to a slider. Askew throws strikes now and it’s just a matter of adding some velocity that should come with his big frame and tightening his breaking ball. Askew can swing the bat, too, and showed us intriguing power potential. He has the Big League frame and outstanding arm action. Bennett is a real sleeper, don't be surprised if he ends up throwing real hard over the next year or two. He's also a good student and seems to have championship caliber makeup.
