Comments
Hitting ability:Henry is at best a fringe-average hitter. He's a line-drive hitter who uses all fields and tends to be better the opposite way.
Power:Has no power to speak of. His extra-base hits come down the line, not in the gaps.
Running speed:Knows how to steal a base, has good instincts on the bases and is very aggressive.
Base running:Has good instincts. He runs better when he's underway and always runs hard.
Arm strength:He has an average arm from the outfield.
Fielding:Has the skills to play center field.
Range:With his speed, he has the range to stay in center.
Physical Description:Henry is a thin, narrow, flat-chested outfielder.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:His speed is his only plus tool.
Weaknesses:His offensive game. He may not have enough bat to excel at the next level.
Summary:Henry is a thin, speedy outfielder with the ability to steal a base and track down balls in the outfield. At the plate, he's a line-drive hitter who goes the other way and has no power to speak of. His bat will have to play for him to be an everyday outfielder, but it's unclear if the necessary strength is there. He could be a fourth outfielder type when all is said and done.
