Tyler Benzel is a 2007 3B with a 6'1'', 195 lb. frame from Groveland FL, who attends Lake Highland HS. He has a strong, well proportioned build. Benzel had a very good showcase defensively, especially in the games. He has very good arm strength and makes accurate, strong throws. He'll look flat footed on some plays but on others showed very good range to his left. As long as Benzel keeps working on his lateral quickness, he can be a solid third baseman at the next level. Our scouts remarked that Benzel's build and raw defensive tools profiled well at catcher, too. Offensively, Benzel hits from an open, no stride approach with his hips already open at bit. He has unusual swing mechanics but consistently squared up on the balls in games and hit the ball hard. His hand strength is a big plus for him on offense and he has the bat head skills to compensate for his lack of ideal balance during his swing. Everything appears to work, although his approach is unconventional. Benzel's tools play across the board. He's signed to play at Lousiana Lafayette.

Tyler Benzel -- Benzel is a freshman shortstop from Florida with a very projectable athletic body and outstanding defensive skills. This kid can flat pick it and did it both in workouts and in games. Benzel has very smooth, balanced actions in the field and an arm that could end up being well above MLB average in the future. He gunned a ball from the hole in a game that got to first base in a big hurry to nail a runner. Benzel’s speed underway isn’t ideal, though excellent for a freshman, but his actions and feet were born to play shortstop. At the plate, Benzel hits from a narrow stance with a big leg kick trigger. He gets very good torque from his hips and legs and generates very good bat speed. Benzel had excellent hard contact ratios in batting practice and took good swings in games as well. He’s a multi-tooled player who could become a top prospect in the "07" class.
