Once the No. 3 starter on his high school staff, Hennessey made the conversion to full-time pitcher and the result was dramatic. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound righthander now projects as high as a second-round pick. Hennessey split time as a pitcher and middle infielder in 2000 and never performed well in either role. As a pitcher only, his fastball jumped from 85-87 mph to 91-92 with a high of 95. He added a hard slider that became his best pitch when he bumped up the velocity to an impressive 85-87 mph. His record was 6-5, 4.06, but he improved every time out and his nine-inning average of 12.8 strikeouts was one of the best in Division I. Scouts like his athleticism and graceful, fluid actions, and see a lot of untapped potential.
