    I am hoping for Casey Martin in round 2, but unlikely he will be around.

    2020 Top 100 Prospects

    #84 Austin Hendrick
    Reds
    OF
    Notes:
    Final 2019 Ranking: NA
    Tools: Hit: 60 | Power: 70 | Run: 45 | Fielding: 50 | Arm: 60
    2019 Average Exit Velo: NA

    Skinny: Quite simply, Hendrick has the potential to be an offensive monster. Scouting directors rated him as the second-best hitter in the 2020 high school class and the best power prospect as well. There are questions about Hendrick’s swing-and-miss and whether the competition he faced as a high schooler in Pennsylvania could have somewhat inflated his offensive output. Hendrick also has excellent arm strength that would play well in right field.

    That'd be a .280 hitter with 30-35 HR to begin, according to fangraphs.

    26 MLB players did it last season.

    Sounds a lot like Jay Bruce.

    That's better than Bruce. Bruce only had one season where he hit 280, and he managed less HRs.

    That's more Juan Soto or Kris Bryant.
