Rory Shortell, rhp

School: San Diego State U. Class: Jr.
Hometown: Portland, Ore.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 215 Birthdate: 6/3/81
Previously Drafted: Red Sox '99 (4th round).
Scouting Report: Picked in the fourth round out of an Oregon high school in 1999, Shortell might go a round earlier this time. He pitched sporadically his first two seasons at San Diego State but showed a marked improvement this year. His stuff is not overpowering--as shown by his 72 strikeouts in 114 innings--but he has shown better arm strength and a better breaking ball than in high school. His fastball has been clocked at 92-93 mph. At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, he has an appealing pitcher's frame.
