Jordan Sheffield’s Scouting Report

Sheffield is a very skilled righty and the brother of Justus Sheffield, who was taken by the Indians in the first-round of the 2014 draft.  Sheffield has two plus pitches (fastball and slider) and the potential to develop a third (changeup). He does tend to overthrow and needs to work on repeating his delivery. He also has a troubling injury history and that could push his stock down some. Overall, Sheffield has plenty of potential and could be a future star at the big league level if he stays healthy.

Strengths

  • Solid fastball with good movement
  • Above average changeup
  • Above average slider
  • Good strikeout pitcher, struck out 10 batters per nine innings his junior year at Vanderbilt

Weaknesses

  • Injury history
  • Needs to improve his mechanics
  • Needs to improve his command

Pitches
Fastball: 94-98 MPH
Changeup: Mid-80’s MPH
Slider: Low-80’s MPH
