Shane continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work to and through a level swing path, creating extension. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields, and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. At 3B, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he works around balls but will benefit by playing through more with his body. Glove action is soft but needs to present more out front. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 78-79 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his knuckleball, showing a feel for pitch with sinking action. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.
