A 31st-round pick of the Mariners last year as a draft-eligible sophomore, Henzman made a wise choice to return for his junior season as he blossomed into a reliable closer after a sporadic sophomore season. Henzman succeeds largely because of a repeatable delivery and a lively fastball. Henzman's 89-95 mph fastball avoids the sweet spot as he sinks it and generates ground balls. He doesn't really have a true out pitch, but his average slider and average changeup both also generate weak contact. His changeup has an almost split action to it as it reaches the plate and his slider shows sharp, slurvy bite with mid-80s velocity. He'll hear his name called much earlier this year than he did last year.
