A 24-year-old former independent leaguer, Bennett acquitted himself admirably with San Jose to finish 2016, and he figures to get a shot at Double-A come the 2017 season. He has some intriguing, budding power for a middle infielder, and long-term, he could fill out a roster as a 25th-man type of utility player that provides some power with his left-handed stroke coming off the bench. Regardless, considering he spent two long years in indy leagues just to get here, Bennett’s professional baseball career even to this point is an admirable underdog victory in and of itself.
