Drafted in the 7th round (234th overall) by the Washington Nationals in 2012 (signed for $145,000)
The 1,000th overall pick in 2009 out of high school, Benincasa turned down the Blue Jays to attend Florida State, unlocking some of his potential as a junior relief ace. He made seven starts the previous two seasons and has a solid 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame and clean arm action that could return him to a starting role as a pro. He has mixed in a solid-average split-changeup but generally pitches off his 90-92 mph fastball, which regularly hits 93-94 and has good sink, and his slider, an above-average pitch with late action and decent depth.
