Profile:  Selected by the Brewers in the 39th round of the 2017 Draft following his senior season at Brown University, Henry signed with Milwaukee and was sent to Maryvale to begin his professional career with their affiliate in the Arizona League.  A line drive hitter, Henry doesn’t have the pop of a corner outfielder, nor is he the burner you’d expect in center, but he is fundamentally sound and reliable and does all of the little things.  With a pateint approach at the plate, Henry is willing to work the count and take a walk and he has plus instincts on the bases which make up for average speed.

2017:  Henry made his pro debut with the AZL Brewers in 2017, appearing in 43 games there.  He wound up hitting .261/.421/.352 with four doubles, three walks and a home run and walked 33 times compared to just 30 strikeouts in 185 plate appearances.
