Hendrix provided the veteran offensive ballast for a young Oregon State team that charged down the stretch to finish second in the Pacific-12 Conference and earn an NCAA tournament berth. At 6-foot, 198 pounds, he's solidly built but still runs well, with above-average speed and enough instincts to play in center field for scouts who like him. He lacks the arm strength for right field, which may limit his upside as a potential fourth outfielder, but he does have the lefthanded bat many teams like in that profile. His swing at times isn't pretty thanks to a slashing style that works due to his excellent hand-eye coordination. That does limit his power potential, though he has strength to hit now. He's 22 and was drafted last year as an eligible sophomore (Royals, 39th round).
