The young hurler clearly has plenty of power, with a fastball in the mid-90s that has touched 97. Despite that, his power curveball may be his best weapon, rating as a plus pitch. He had an incredible 111 strikeouts through 55.1 innings this season. He throws hard but his command needs to improve and he is going to need another strong pitch if he wants to start.
Pitching and size are not the only things Hensley brings to the table, however. He is a switch hitter who actually can do a lot of damage at the plate. He hit ten homers this season and drove in 42 runs, while picking up the Gatorade State Baseball Player of the Year for Oklahoma. In fact, Hensley’s twitter profile uses a picture of him at the plate instead of pitching. Scouts have noted Hensley’s work ethic and makeup as other positives, in addition to his ability to speak Spanish. Baseball America has this video of Hensley both on the mound and at (both sides of) the plate.
