Benoit is a fourth-year junior who spent his freshman year at Tennessee, his sophomore season at Santa Fe (Fla.) JC and now two years with Tulane. Benoit has a big arm. He sat at 93-95 mph and touched 97-98 in 2021. The results did not match the stuff. He bounced between the rotation and the bullpen and posted a 5.67 ERA with a 4-4 record. Despite his solid velocity, Benoit’s fastball was quite hittable. He doesn’t get swings and misses when he elevates and hitters hit .356/.472/.514 against the pitch. His above-average 83-85 mph slider is a better pitch with some power.
