Drafted in the 17th round (512th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Benson was off to an outstanding start in 2021 as the Sun Devils’ Friday night starter, pitching seven scoreless innings over two starts before becoming one of three ASU pitchers needing Tommy John surgery. Prior to the injury, Benson stood out for his plus control and command of a fastball sitting 86-89 mph, touching 90. His best secondary pitch is an average changeup, and he rounds out his repertoire with a below-average, slurvy breaking ball. The stuff alone isn’t flashy, but everything plays up because of his pitchability and command.
