Drafted in the 38th round (1140th overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2019 (signed for $75,000)
A 20th-round pick by the Royals out of Barton (Kan.) JC last year, Hendrickson is the latest soft-tossing lefty to come out of Australia. The 6-foot-4 Perth native pitched in the Cape Cod League last summer before transferring to San Diego and logged a 6.92 ERA in the Toreros rotation. Hendrickson is a pitchability lefty in the same vein of his Australian forbears Josh Spence and Alex Wells. His fastball sits just 84-87 mph and will scrape a 90 early. He shows feel to spin both a slider and a curveball and throws all his pitches for strikes. Hendrickson shows feel to pitch, but his lack of stuff resulted in opponents batting .299 with 17 extra-base hits off of him in 39 innings. Even with his his struggles, the fact he’s big and lefthanded still has some teams interested.
