4 132 Seattle Mariners Steven Hensley RHP N.C. $233,000
Drafted in the 44th round of the 2005 draft by the Nationals, Hensley chose college and over the past three years has made a solid case to be considered the best pitcher in Elon's baseball history. The career strikeout and wins leader for the Phoenix, Hensley also has a chance to be the highest-drafted Elon player since the school moved up to Division I in 2000 (Lefthander Brad Pinkerton was a fifth-round selection of the Angels in the 2001 draft). He attacks hitters with a four-pitch mix, including a low-90s fastball, fringe-average changeup and curveball, and average slider. At his best, Hensley throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, and has both late life and tight spin on his fastball and secondary pitches. At times he's inconsistent, dropping his arm angle and causing his pitches to flatten out. Hensley also has experience pitching the Cape Cod League, going 4-2, 3.52 for the Bourne Braves last summer.
