A 40th-round pick of the Giants coming out of high school, Bennett has been one of the more durable and reliable pitchers in the ACC over the past three seasons. But in the lead-up to the draft, his durability suddenly became a question as he was held out for two weeks with a forearm strain. When he returned, his stuff and command was a tick below normal, and he allowed nine hits and six earned runs in his first 2.1 innings back on the mound. When he’s at his best, Bennett can attack hitters with a 90-92 mph fastball and above-average control. He mixes in a big, slow, above-average curveball that has the ability to lock up hitters. The command and consistency of his curveball helps the pitch play up because he can throw it for a strike in any count. He also has an average changeup. Bennett has long impressed scouts with his fearlessness on the mound, but his late-season swoon complicates his draft status.
