    After a solid summer in the Cape Cod League, Shugart was poised to prove to scouts that he could start, as he was slated to move into the Longhorns rotation after two years in the bullpen. The move to the rotation hasn't gone as smoothly as Shugart hoped. He'd touched 96-97 in shorter stints, but it's dropped to 89-93 mph as a starter. His fastball and his 81-84 mph slider and 73-75 mph curve have proven more hittable than expected in longer outings. As a reliever both played up a little more, but starting has allowed him to use a playable changeup as well. He struggles at times to get his fastball down in the zone, and without much plane on the pitch, it's hittable up in the zone even when it has solid velocity. Shugart already faced draft headwinds because he's a 5-foot-10 righthander, and he's yet to prove he can stick in the rotation in pro ball.
