A high school teammate of Yankees infielder Tyler Wade and Rays prospect Kevin Padlo at Murrieta Valley (Calif.) HS, Shackelford has a long track record of hitting from the left side. He is a short, 5-foot-10 fireplug who projects as more of a doubles hitter in pro ball despite his power numbers. He will likely move to second base and has the bat to profile there.
