Gunnar Henderson 2019

Recommended Posts

https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/10/this-that-and-the-other-189.html

A scout from outside the organization who watched shortstop Gunnar Henderson in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League predicted that the second-round pick will move to second or third base “if the bat evolves.”

The scout sees tremendous upside with Henderson and notes the line-drive stroke, pull power and ability to use the middle of the field.

Henderson struggled a bit with off-speed stuff, which isn’t a surprising for an 18-year-old engaged in his first professional season.

.701 OPS in his pro debut from HS. Didn’t he start like 0-22?  Nice rebound. Is Delmarva too big of a jump?  Aberdeen next year?

He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.

Both he and Hernaiz should start next year at Delmarva with their upsides.

From what I read today on another site, Henderson has a very strong arm.   It’s thought that he’ll get a little too big for SS, and be moved to 3B.

Hernaiz wasn’t on my radar but sounds like he’s on yours. Didn’t realize he put up a .736 OPS at 17 yo last year. While playing SS. Seems like a sneaky good draft pick.

I like Henderson a lot -- great talent for where they got him. Looking forward to seeing what he does in full season ball.

Glad to see you!

The BA write-up on him says he reminds them of Mountcastle with the bat and that he should be able to stick on the left side of the infield.

A Mountcastle bat who can play left side of the infield is a very high bar. If he reaches that, we'll be very happy with this pick.
