Pending Pinstripes Prospect of the Week: C.J. Henry

C.J. Henry, ss
Born: May 31, 1986
Height: 6-3 Weight: 205
Bats/Throws: Right
High School: Putnam City High School (Oklahoma City,OK)
Drafted by Yankees in 1st round (17th overall) of 2005 amateur entry draft (June Regular Phase)

This week's spotlighted prospect is C.J. Henry, who's too young to have a nickname better than his initials. The Yankees selected him as their first round pick last year, directly out of high school. Like fellow 2005 Yankees draftee Austin Jackson, Henry came out of high school wanting to play college basketball, and having the athletic tools to do so, if he wanted. As a result the Yankees did what they always do when they have a problem: they threw money at it, er...him, to the tune of a $1.6 million signing bonus. That worked, and Henry reported to the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League.
