Henry is an average sized, 2-way player who catches and plays OF. Behind the plate, Henry has efficient footwork, a solid set-up, and flexible actions. He keeps his chin down when blocking, he tracks the ball well, and he throws with consistency to his target. Quicker feet, a wider base, and added arm strength will help catching get better. In the OF, Henry has solid footwork, he gets in a good ready position, and he throws with a clean exchange with consistency to his target. Greater energy and playing more through the ball will help OF improve. At the plate, Henry has an athletic set-up, good balance, and a compact swing. He makes solid contact, has good separation, and he gets good extension through the ball. If Henry can let the ball travel, loosen his actions, and swing in better rhythm, offense will spike.
