Heinrich stands out the most for his impressive righthanded power. He has above-average raw power, especially when he pulls the ball, and was chosen to participate in the Junior Select Home Run Derby last summer at the All-Star Game. He doesn't get cheated at the plate, generating plenty of bat speed to go with enough strength to power balls out of any park. Heinrich has seen time at first base and in the outfield, as well as the mound, where he combines a fastball that touches 92 mph with a decent slider. He could be a two-way player if he upholds his commitment to Central Florida, but pro scouts are looking at him strictly as a hitter. His arm strength and average speed could be good enough to allow him to play right field, but some see him as a future first baseman. No matter where he ultimately ends up defensively, however, it'll be up to his bat to carry him.
