Shay Whitcomb
Name: Shay Lane Whitcomb
Born: Sep 28, 1998 in Thousand Oaks, CA
College: UC San Diego
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 200 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 5th round (160th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2020 (signed for $56,000)
Whitcomb made waves in the Cape Cod League last summer when he hit .303 with eight home runs in 34 games while posting sizzling exit velocities. He continued mashing this spring at UC San Diego to solidify his rising stock before the season shut down. Whitcomb is the rare Division II prospect who scouts are confident will hit. He has a good swing, turns around velocity, consistently finds the barrel and has above-average raw power he gets to in games. Evaluators see him as at least an average hitter and possibly more. Whitcomb is a fringy defender with a below-average arm at shortstop, leading scouts to project him as an offensively-driven second baseman in pro ball. Whitcomb’s bat, solidified by his performance on the Cape, has him in top five rounds consideration. He has a chance to be the first Division II player drafted this year.
