If anyone convinces Short to forgo his commitment to Louisville, it will mean that team is confident there’s more to come from a lefthander with a four-pitch mix. At his best, Short already shows a future plus curveball and a fastball that can touch 92 mph. But he doesn’t show that velocity consistently and has generally been sitting at a below-average 86-89 mph in the lead-up to the draft. Short also throws a developing slider and changeup. The changeup has some promise as it has solid drop near the plate. Scouts have differing opinions on Short’s remaining projection. Some see him as a safe bet to add several ticks to his fastball over the next few years, while others are more inclined to let him enroll at Louisville and check back in a few years to pay him a larger signing bonus if he keeps improving.
