The Oregon commit shines in all phases of the game and looks the part of a true shortstop at the next level. At 6-foot-2, 190-pounds he has some lean, defined strength throughout a wiry-athletic frame that will likely continue to add, and provides for fluid actions both defensively and offensively. At the plate, the right-handed hitter takes mature rounds, spraying loud contact to all fields with minimal effort. Starting open with the hands held high, he squares with a short stride that allows free separation down and back before working directly to the ball with a slight uphill path. There is some quickness to the hands with minor collapsing of the back side, and Fellows showed some intent to work to the opposite field throughout. His exit velocities are eye-opening as he averaged 97.41 mph per Trackman, and was as high as 105.63 mph while hardly breaking a sweat. His hard hit percentage (91.7%) also stands out as he exhibited quality barrel accuracy. Fellows closed out his workout by demonstrating his clean, confident hands at shortstop. He bounced around with crisp footwork, and took no issue with any tough hops that were sent his way, and made each play look routine with a quick release that still allowed his arm strength (88 mph across) to present itself. Although the sixty was not run at the event, Fellows has shown off his speed in the past which will only help elevate his status as a prospect.
