A 6-foot-4, 209-pound righthander, Benton began his career as a starter for the Pirates, but as a sophomore and junior he has split time between starting and relieving. After posting a 3.13 ERA with 68 strikeouts and 13 walks in 69 innings in 2018, Benton was off to another solid campaign this spring. He’d recorded a 4.01 ERA and a career-best strikeout rate of more than 10 batters per nine innings through 24.2 innings before a season-ending arm surgery ended his junior year in late May. When healthy, Benton has a three-pitch mix, headlined by a fastball in the 89-94 mph range that’s been up to 95 mph. His slider has improved since last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he posted a 2.01 ERA over 22.1 innings, and he also throws a solid changeup.
