CBS Sports activities’ R.J. Anderson recently explained why Henderson was considered arguably the top prospect in the minors:

He is impressed scouts together with his above-average uncooked energy and his defensive potential. The Orioles have cross-trained him at each left-side infield positions all through his profession, however scouts count on him to finish up at third base long run.
