Ht/Wt: 6' 4"/200 lbs
Position: OF
Team: Red Land HS (PA)

Benny Montgomery - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - June 18: "He's a 70 runner with a plus arm, projecting to stick in center field where he has long, gliding strides and good closing speed on balls hit into the gaps. At the plate, Montgomery's bat speed ranks among the best in the class."

MLB - June: "All summer long, he showed off his close to top-of-the-scale speed (some scouts have 80 run times for him) and his tremendous raw power that helped him win the Perfect Game All-American Classic Home Run Derby. The main concern with the Virginia recruit had been with his ability to get to that power, with a bit of a rigid swing and flat bat path."

Prospects Live - May 31: "Montgomery has an unorthodox swing with some hitchy hands, though he makes it work. Montgomery uses his supreme athleticism to get on time and make consistent contact. It's not conventional, but neither was Hunter Pence during his hay-day."

Prospects Live - Mar. 18: "At worst, Montgomery is a guy with at least 70-grade speed and a 70-arm in the field. His raw power is substantial too, drawing grades anywhere from plus to double-plus. The biggest question will be can he hit."

Michael Dault - Through The Fence Baseball - Mar. 13th: "A tremendously raw contact hitter with good size and strength. Montgomery has been compared to the likes of a Hunter Pence and Jayson Werth."

R.J. Anderson - CBS Sports - Feb. 15th: "Montgomery is another prep outfielder with well-rounded potential who could propel himself up the board with a strong spring. His charms include a strong arm, above-average speed, and a fast-moving barrel."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 26th: "There are plenty of moving parts in his setup, so either toning that down or simply showing more consistent contact and putting himself in a better launch position could go a long way."
