Rob Henry Scouting Report & Game Video
Dates Observed: March 12-14, 2018
Team/Organization: Spring Training (Milwaukee Brewers)
League/Level: Cactus League (Spring Training)
Scouting Notes: As athletic and defensively-gifted in this look as he’d been late last summer in the AZL (below), but with one major change: Rob Henry devoted a ton of time over the offseason to really changing and improving his swing to better do damage in the air offensively. His swing path has improved considerably, and he’s far more likely now to make hard contact in the air than he’d been a year ago. Not a power guy, but will hit a few home runs; more than enough speed to live gap to gap and now has the swing to actually do it. Add that to his above-average athleticism and defensive prowess, and suddenly, for me, Rob Henry has a shot to hit a 45 FV platoon/bench outfielder ceiling with the chance to really move steadily within the Milwaukee Brewers organization.
Dates Observed: August 10-14, 2017
Team/Organization: AZL Brewers (Milwaukee Brewers)
League/Level: Arizona League (Rookie)
Scouting Notes: Underrated, under the radar prospect; very good athlete with at least three above-average tools: run, throw, glove. Timed 4.20, 4. 21, and 4.22 up the line from the RHH box; great foot speed out in the outfield when he can really get going at top speed. Good reads off the bat, tracks the ball extremely well, runs it down in center field while showing a ton of range. Big-time arm strength in the outfield, as well; very good velo and carry on throws … More of a work in progress at the plate; OK contact skills with decent barrel control, but quite a bit of weak/ground ball contact there. Swing plane straight down, will have some work to do as a hitter to become more than a bench/up-and-down emergency outfielder, especially considering age/late draft round out of Brown. Rob Henry has bona fide defensive skills, though; real traits to be a well above-average everyday defensive outfielder and he made for a nice diamond in the rough at the AZL.
