Payton Henry

Payton Henry is a few years behind the first few names on our list because he’s only two years removed from high school. Henry was selected in the sixth round in 2016, and he spent last year in Single-A.

Henry posted a .234/.327/.380 slash line in his first season above Rookie-ball. While it may take some time for his bat to develop, it looks like he’ll stick behind the dish. Henry only made three errors and gave up six passed balls in 93 appearances at catcher. He also threw out 46 of 105 would be base stealers.

Henry won’t turn 22 until late June of 2019, and still needs some more seasoning before he projects to a role with the Milwaukee Brewers. However, he’s off to a solid start.
