Jordan Sheffield Commitment

quote: 32. Kansas City Royals — Jordan Sheffield, RHP, Tullahoma HS (TN)
Sheffield is a two-sport star whose commitment to Vanderbilt might make him a tough sign. The 6’-1”, 185-pound right-hander can touch 97 mph with his fastball, and it has late life. He also has a power curve to go along with a slider that projects to plus. Over 49.2 innings last season, he had a 0.99 ERA and 73 K/24 BB while only allowing 21 hits. He was really impressive over the summer and quieted concerns about his size. Tons of upside, and has been really impressive lately, but again, Vanderbilt.
I love seeing this. Just goes to show what Corbin has done over a decade. He's transformed Vandy baseball.
