OKLAHOMA CITY– The Yankees’ #1 prospect in the 2012 draft was knocked unconscious at a party in his home state.
The 21-year-old right handed pitcher from Edmond Santa Fe was jumped in Oklahoma City on December 28th.
Hensley was knocked unconscious and then beaten. He suffered a broken jaw, but as since been released.
“He has multiple injuries to his face, most notably a broken jaw in multiple places. Luckily, he has no neurological injuries of any kind. He is pretty beaten up. He is doing well now and recovering. Besides his facial injuries, we expect him to make a full recovery,” Hensley’s lawyer, Jacob Diesselhorst said.
Diesselhorst said it is his understanding the case has been turned over to the Oklahoma County DA’s office because the alleged assailant has been unwilling to cooperate.
