The Write-Up: Andrew Benintendi (7.7.16)
Breaking down the Andrew Benintendi call-up (8.2.16)

Physical Description: Compact, short, strong, athletic build. Maxed out physically. 

Hit: Quick hands and explosive through the zone while staying under control. Shows advanced knowledge of the strike zone. Short and quick through the zone with a two-handed finish. Pull approach.

Power: Plus bat speed. Compact strength. Leverage in swing for future plus power.

Arm: Average arm strength and accuracy.

Field: Athletic defensive actions with average reads and range in center field. 

Run: Above-average runner with base-stealing potential. Not a burner, but quick, athletic strides with accelerating speed underway and great instincts.

Summation: Future potential regular, everyday-type center fielder. Athleticism and profile to potentially play all three outfield positions. Average to above-average tools across the board. Needs to prove raw power and approach will continue to translate against advanced pitching.
