Georgia Tech Commit. 6-foot-3, 180 pounds. Now there is some rawness to his game, but WOW is this a fun player to watch. Not only has the baseball version of Usain Bolt gotten stronger over the winter, but the swing has noticeably better rhythm & timing. While the bigger c load does promote some sweep to his path, it was very impressive to see Kyle’s approach developing quickly before our eyes. His first AB was a textbook inside out swing and he did a perfect job squaring the hips & shoulders to right center late in stride, allowing him to keep the bat path true and drove the ball to the wall. This is a move you typically see in top round college guys and pros only, so the impression there was lasting. AB 2 was a combo of a very good, focused bunt and his top of the scale run tool, which surely can’t be taught. Clocking in a 6.59 on a non drag is elite speed at the game’s highest level. But offensively, he was timed up on every pitch vs a very solid upper 80’s arm. We got to see him glide to a couple fly balls with ease, just a tease of his big time range. The next step for me is to see him show the aptitude to manipulate and flatten the path up in the zone vs big velo.

Georgia Tech Commit. 6 foot 3, 177 pounds. With 6.2 - 6.3 speed that is top of the scale, Henley is without question the fastest player in the state. He’d be right at the top of MLB sprint speed if he were there now, which I believe is only a matter of time. Kyle brings 3 electric tools to the diamond at a premium defensive position (CF) that play every day, regardless if he has a good game at the plate or not. Due to his run tool and athleticism, the range and glove are from another planet, giving him true gold glove potential in the future. Henley is very well balanced at the plate and has made vast improvements in simplifying & quieting down his swing in the past year. With excellent bat speed and elite reaction time, he’ll be turning around FB’s all spring!
