The Baltimore Orioles drafted Gunnar Henderson in the 2019 MLB Draft with the 42nd overall pick out of John T. Morgan Academy (Selma, AL). Henderson was born on June 29, 2001, bats left, throws right, and plays shortstop or third base.
Gunnar Randal Henderson stands 6’3″, weighs around 200 lbs, and comes stacked with thick forearms, broad-shouldered, and long limbs, which are ideal for adding bicep area strength for the long ball.

- Best Gunnar Henderson RC: 2019 Bowman Draft RC #BDC22
We see Gunnar as a solid everyday shortstop with serious All-Star potential. He is a team leader that goes about that with quiet confidence and leads by example for the most part.
Reports dictate strong power to go along with a moderate to moderate high average, precisely the type of prospects we love to invest in.
