Lunsford-Shenkman has an athletic frame with strength present and projection left to it. Throws from a three-quarters arm slot, short loose quick arm action, easier effort to his delivery, shoulders are level and closed, lands slightly open with an athletic finish. Fastball was 88-91 with downward plane and some boring action to armside. Showed a curveball with good armspeed and sharp hard 11/5 break at 76-77, pitch had some shape to it. Change-up had good armspeed and heavy late fade at 80-81. Showed ability to command all three pitches in all parts of the zone, looked like he was in mid-season form already. Can bury breaking ball at back foot of lefties.

Shenkman didn't look great overall, but it was his first outing against live hitters in 2020 and it is very early in the season and there were some things to like. Overall, he looks like he has thinned out a bit, his frame is still strong but he looks more athletic this spring. Arm action looked clean and easy, looks healthy and is working up to game speed, which is all very good. Fastball was 84-87 with more movement than he had showed in the past. He was around the zone but had trouble getting strike calls and was working behind hitters. It didn't help him that Patriot's lineup is very good with commanding the strikezone. Only threw a few curveballs being behind in the count and early in the spring, but the ones he threw looked very good. Good armspeed, pitch came in at 72, sharp 11/5 break, showing as a swing and miss pitch now. Overall the results weren't good, but for a first outing it was fine and Shenkman looks ready for a good 2021.

Shenkman has a big strong frame with some projection left to it as he continues to add muscle to it. Shenkman throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a short, loose arm action and a very quick arm, normal effort to his delivery. Shoulders uphill and closed, lands on line with an athletic finish. Shenkman's fastball sat 82-88 on the day with some downward plane and late run. In the first inning, he worked 86-88 from the windup, but was 82-85 in the slide step. That velocity held in the third inning, 86-88 in the windup and 83-85 in the stretch. He started to tail off in the fifth, working at 82-84 in the windup, but he found a second wind in the sixth, sitting 84-86. Showed ability to move pitch to both sides of the plate, but command within the strikezone is the next step for him. Curveball was 68-73 with between 10/4 and 11/5 break and some armspeed. Pitch looked best when he got on top and it was 72-73 with 11/5 tilt, showing sharp break and some armspeed. Pitch has a chance to be swing and miss as he gets more consistent with it.

Shenkman threw a short relief stint and was in the stretch the whole time. Strong athletic frame. Throws from a high three-quarters slot with a loose quick arm and some effort. Fastball had a bit of late sink to it and sat 85-87. Drop and drive delivery created a flatter plane, worked down in the zone during his whole outing. Only threw fastballs, will be a very interesting prospect to check in on again as he continues to develop.
