12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic Shawn is an athletic two-way player with good size, intimidating on the mound and is always looking to get better. On the mound, Shawn has a big frame, good mound presence, and has good feel for his pitches. A good slider compliments a well commanded fastball that he hides very well. Hitters seem uncomfortable against him. Defensively at 1B, Shawn has a strong arm, picks the ball out of the dirt very well and has proper footwork around the base. As he improves his flexibility, he will improve defensively. At the plate, Shawn has very good hand eye, delivers the barrel to the ball well and finished his backside through well. He simply needs to maintain slightly better posture and rhythm to become more consistent with his hitting mechanics.
