Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45 | Overall: 40

Limited by injuries to his left foot and shoulder in college at Oregon, Heineman went in the 11th round in 2015 as a redshirt junior and missed his first pro summer after surgery on his foot. The younger brother of Diamondbacks catching prospect Tyler Heineman, he was the Rangers' 2018 Minor League player of the year after batting .306 with 12 homers and 18 steals, mostly in Triple-A. Expected to compete for a fourth outfielder job in Spring Training, he tore the labrum in his non-throwing shoulder during winter ball and will miss the first part of the 2019 season.

Heineman prompts Eric Byrnes comparisons because of his athleticism and energy. He offers steady if not spectacular offensive production, making consistent line-drive contract with a relatively flat right-handed stroke. His strength and bat speed give him raw power that he hasn't fully tapped into, and he runs the bases aggressively with solid speed.

Heineman has bounced between all three outfield spots throughout his career. He could fill in as a big league center fielder in small doses but his average range and arm work better on the corners. Though he lacks a carrying tool to become a starter in Texas, his ability to provide a little bit of everything could make him a useful reserve.
