The New York Yankees selected Blair Henley in the 22nd round of the 2016 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Henley, is a right handed pitcher out of Arlington Heights High School.
In March and April, Blair threw three consecutive no-hitters in 2016. Scouts rave about his pitch-ability and polish for a high school student athlete. Henley can also repeat his easy balanced delivery on a consistent basis.
His fastball sits between 89-91 miles per hour and features riding life. He can command his solid slider and throw it for strikes, or use it as a chase pitch. His change up is a work in progress.
Henley is committed to play for the Texas Longhorns next season, should he elect to not sign a professional contract.
