  Scouting Report
 
One of the last relics of the Bando era, Hendrickson has progressed steadily up the chain and turned himself into a top-tier prospect. Owns one of the top breaking pitches in all the minors, a knee-buckling spike curve that drops like an anvil when it's on. Huge potential strikeout pitch than can be unhittable. Fastball has average velocity, running in the high 80's to low 90's during a game. Decent movement. Control needs some tweaking. Still trying to find his changeup, although he has made strides with it over the last season. Throws two of them, one that moves in and one that moves out. It will be important to develop if he is to fulfill his potential as a top-to-middle of the rotation starter. Lanky build could use some weight, but he has a clean delivery and there is little wear and tear on his arm. Bulldog on the mound who refuses to give up runs.
