Shane continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate is where this lefty has improved the most, displaying well above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through a squared setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation into a strong launch position. Barrel is whipped through the zone as he connects with strength. The ball jumps off of his barrel as he crushes it to the gaps. At SS, feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front. He moves well laterally, displaying range and shows a plus backhand. Throws are accurate from multiple arm slots with zip (82 mph velocity) across the diamond.

Shane is a long, lean, 2-way player who will graduate in 2022. At SS, Shane has active feet, firm hands, and he takes good angles to the ball. He fields squarely, plays through, and his exchange is clean with a short arm action across the diamond. Continuing to add arm strength and quicken feet will help INF skills improve. In the OF, Shane has a good 1st step to the ball, he tracks well, and uses 2 hands to catch. He centers it well, makes plays consistently, and throws with momentum and accuracy to his target. If Shane can field ground balls further out front of his body, and add more crow hop, abilities in the OF will improve. At the plate, this LHH has a crouched stance, a square stride, and he swings in good rhythm. He swings on plane, makes square contact, and he uses his lower body. A more direct barrel, leveling off his swing, and letting the ball travel deeper will help spike hitting.
