Drafted in the 26th round (792nd overall) by the Houston Astros in 2018 (signed for $1,000)
Hensley is famous among San Diego-area scouts as the only player who barreled up Brady Aiken in high school during the 2014 season, the year Aiken went No. 1 overall in the draft. Hensley went on to a decorated four-year career at San Diego State that concluded with a .316 average this year as the Aztecs’ starting shortstop. Hensley is the rare college senior who has some projectability left. He’s 6-foot-6 with a low waist, long torso and long arms, resulting in plenty of room to still add strength. Hensley has a good feel for the barrel and shows hints of power, although nothing projects plus. Defensively he held his own at shortstop despite his size but projects to move to third base, where his average arm and reliable hands work.
