Sheehan came into the year with less hype than Mason Pelio, but when Pelio struggled, Sheehan stepped into the Friday night starter role for Boston College by the end of the season. In his penultimate start, he set a single-game school record with 15 strikeouts against Pittsburgh, a Top 25 team at the time, and finished with 106 strikeouts in 76.2 innings. Sheehan's best pitch is his fastball, which at times sat 90-93 mph, though in some starts later in the year he worked more in the 91-95 mph range and touched 97. His fastball rides up in the zone longer than hitters expect, so he generates a lot of empty swings when he elevates with his heater, and that fastball is how Sheehan gets a lot of his swings and misses. However, when his changeup is on like it was against Pittsburgh, that gives Sheehan another pitch to miss bats. It's mostly 78-81 mph, so it has excellent separation off his fastball and good sink when he keeps it down. It's inconsistent, though, and in some starts he didn't miss any bats with his changeup. Sheehan's curveball has decent shape to it, but it's a fringe-average pitch that lacks the snap and bite to get whiffs. Sheehan issued 4.0 BB/9 and needs to tighten his fastball command. Sheehan isn't raw, but he has some promising raw components in his pitch mix that professional coaches could help him iron out.
