I see there’s a lot of talk out there these days about Sean Henn’s chances to make the Yankees this season.
Did you know that Henn holds the all-time record for the highest bonus ever paid to a “draft-and-follow” pick? The Yankees gave Henn $1.701 million in 2001 after drafting him in the 26th round of the 2000 draft.
Henn was bad in Triple-A last year. And, his big league exposure to date has not been pretty. Maybe this is the year that the Yankees start to see some return on their investment? Personally, I don’t think he has the command that’s needed to come out of the pen in the majors – or, at least he’s yet to show it.
