2016 Johnny Bench Award Watch List

Walter on Breazeale
"Ben returns as a four-year starter behind the plate. The good news is, with the emergence of Logan Harvey, ‎we'll be able to rest him more. Regardless of whether or not he is behind the plate, Ben is a middle-of-the-order power bat who will be a key cog in the lineup every day. He'll catch at least half the time and DH the other half."
