Drafted in the 8th round (234th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2016 (signed for $160,000)
A 6-foot-8 lefthander with four pitches, Sheckler has the potential to develop into a quality starting pitcher. His fastball works mostly at 89-92. Sheckler throws a sharp horizontal slider and a more loose three-quarter curveball. He flashes some feel for a changeup. Sheckler's unique combination of size and stuff, as well as his solid command, give him a chance to develop into a back-of-the-rotation type.
