    Henley has been a productive pitcher in three years at Texas, but scouts are lukewarm in part because his stuff hasn’t really gotten better since he was in high school. He had a dominant senior year at Fort Worth’s Arlington Heights High, throwing back-to-back-to-back no-hitters at one point. A 22nd-round pick of the Yankees in 2016, Henley was a well-rounded righthander out of high school with an 88-92 mph fastball. Three years later, he’s a well-rounded righthander with an 88-92 mph fastball. He has a rock-and-fire delivery and an over-the-top release point. He’s a solid strike-thrower with a fringy fastball. His plus 76-78 mph curveball is his best attribute. It’s a high-spin rate pitch that he’s shown an ability to locate. He has a fringe-average changeup.
