Drafted in the 23rd round (700th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017
One of the best things the new Kentucky coaching staff did in 2017 as they turned the Wildcats into a NCAA regional host was figuring out how to get value from players already on the roster who had struggled. After serving as Kentucky's light-hitting everyday shortstop as a sophomore, Heady lost that job in 2016 as he battled injuries and ineffectiveness at the plate. He came into 2017 as a career .188 hitter, but he got stronger and put together better at-bats as a senior, hitting a career-best .283/.413/.435. Heady is still a below-average hitter, but now his bat plays well enough to make him a bottom-of-the-order option because of his above-average arm and defense at shortstop. He's also played second base in the past and most likely projects in pro ball as a utility infielder.
