Henley doesn't have an eye-popping set of tools, nor the most ideal height for a prospective big-league ballplayer, but he makes up for it with his determination and his heady, aggressive approach to the game. He has a solid, line drive bat that has some home run power to it from the left side. He drives the ball consistently, and has a nice, patient approach that allows him to draw plenty of walks. While he has very good speed, he's not a huge threat on the basepaths, but he does have very good range in centerfield and takes excellent routes to fly balls. His arm strength is above average, and he makes all the right throws in all of the right situations. He was drafted in the 50th round last year by the Houston Astros, although everyone knew he was virtually unsignable as a draft-eligible sophomore.
