Nick Shelton RHP / Sandburg, IL / 2018

6-foot-4, 185-pound lanky right-handed pitcher with a projectable frame. One of the biggest revelations from the event, impressing with his frame and fastball that topped out at 89 mph. Works from a high ¾ arm angle with a long arm action. Tall and fall delivery with easy effort. Arches back at balance point, smooth rhythm. Fastball has cutting action at 85-88 topping out at 89 mph. Curveball has 11-5 shape with depth at 71-72 mph. Splitter worked 74-76 mph.
