WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates drafted Hendrie from the same college as their previous pick, Mike Jarvis.  Unlike Jarvis, Hendrie was a junior.  The Cubs drafted him out of junior college in 2019 and he didn’t sign.  He went to San Diego State in 2020 and took over the regular catching job.  He’s a converted outfielder with good athleticism who could eventually be above average defensively.  His arm is above average.  He had a strong year offensively in 2021, batting 379/464/633 with nine home runs.  He walked just a little less than he struck out.  He also stole eight bases without getting caught.  Baseball America rated him 270th among draft prospects.  The Pirates signed Hendrie for less than the slot amount of $244,900.
