    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.
    Is anyone surprised that he immediately leaps Greene and Lodolo on BA's list? I understand with Greene to some extent because of his injury. Still, not sure I was expecting that. Interesting nonetheless.

    I hope we see a lot of this guy's name coming up in Reds' headlines over the next decade or so. Name:  OIP.jpg

    Doesnít seem that weird to me. Him and Lodolo seem like comparable draft talents, and itís not like Lodoloís proven much yet. Greeneís just a difficult guy to rank at the moment, so I donít put much stock in that number personally.
