A three-year starter at Wichita State, Jenista formed a formidable 1-2 punch with Alec Bohm in the Shockers lineup. Bohm went No. 3 overall in the 2018 Draft, but because Jenista wasn't able to carry over his Cape Cod League MVP performance and turned in a bit of an uneven junior season, he ended up being available for the Braves to select in the second round. He did hit his way up to the Class A Advanced Florida State League in his pro debut.
Big and physical at 6-foot-4, Jenista is surprisingly athletic and shows more tools than you might think upon first glance. In college and during most of his pro debut, Jenista showed the ability to consistently barrel up the baseball with a largely line-drive-oriented approach and swing path, while limiting strikeouts and drawing some walks. There's a lot of raw power in his left-handed swing that he hasn't always tapped into, and it could be plus when all is said and done if he can hit enough to get to it.
Jenista played first and right field at Wichita State and showed he could do a capable job in center field in the Cape. He'll likely stick at an outfield corner, where he played during his debut, as a pro, but there is pressure on that power bat to progress.
