2016 Season in Review: Jeff Hendrix

Jeff Hendrix had one of the most up-and-down years in the Yankees system. At times, he appeared to be an ideal lead-off hitter, but at other points of the year he struggled mightily. His enigmatic season began in A-ball as a member of the Charleston Riverdogs. He played 62 games at the level despite two stints on the disabled list with separate injuries.

His first injury was a hamstring injury that kept him on the disabled list for 6 days, upon returning from the DL, Hendrix went 15-for-24, and won a Player of the Week award. A couple of days after winning the award he found himself back on the DL with a wrist injury. He ended up spending about half-month on the shelf with that injury, upon his return he had continued his superb play and went 15-for-29 in eight games, while collecting three doubles and a triple.

His post injury play really propped up his numbers and overall, and gave him the followings numbers: .299 AVG, .397 OBP, .389 SLG, .366 wOBA, .090 ISO, wRC+ 132, 22.3 k%, and a 12.6 BB%. This earned him a second-half promotion to the Tampa Yankees, where he played 35 games.

In those 35 games, he put up the following numbers: .284 AVG, .353 OBP, .362 SLG, .339 wOBA, 113 wRC+, 8.3 BB%, 15.4 K%, and a .078 ISO. As a senior draftee, you would expect him to do better in the FSL, but overall I would say he had a decent year.

But for Hendrix to truly get on the prospect map, he must prove he could play well consistently, and that he could do it in age appropriate levels. He was .6 months older than the average player in the Sally League, and was .7 months younger than the average pitcher in the Florida State League. So obviously he will have a lot to prove in 2017.
