  • Bob Henley

    Here's a name I'd never heard of before.

    In 1998, 25-year-old catcher Bob Henley hit .304/.377/.470 with 3 home runs, 18 RBI and 35 hits in 41 games for the Expos. He'd hit .300 or better twice in the minors before. But, after suffering an arm injury, he played only two games in the low minors in 1999 and then his professional career was over, save for a brief comeback stint in the Pirates system in 2002.

    What was Henley's ceiling? Did he factor into the Expos' future at the time? How big of a loss was he?

    Awfully small sample, and I never saw him play in person (I was in New York at the time).

    But a 124 OPS+ for a catcher is pretty darn good. And I think he threw out 1/3 of the runners who attempted to steal. Not bad.
