Steve Shell, rhp
El Reno (Okla.) HS


Shell has one of the easiest arm actions in the draft, which may tempt a team to take him in the supplemental first round. Long and loose at 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, he looks like he's on cruise control but delivers a consistent 88-92 mph fastball that tops out at 94. He projects to develop a hard slider, though his changeup will need work. Shell and fellow high school prospects Kole Strayhorn, Billy Bajema and Travis Wendte helped an Oklahoma team go 110-6 during the summer of 1997, including winning the National Amateur Baseball Federation's Sophomore World Series.
