Drafted in the 6th round (171st overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2013 (signed for $150,000)
After starring on the showcase circuit last summer and fall, Shane entered 2013 as the No. 2 high school pitching prospect in the Lone Star State, behind fellow Texas A&M recruit Kohl Stewart. But he got out of shape during the winter and added 35 pounds, now carrying 235 on his 6-foot-4 frame. The 92-94 mph fastball than enticed scouts has been more 87-91 mph this spring, though it still features heavy sink. His formerly plus curveball has lost some of its depth, though it remains an effective pitch. He has feel for a changeup and repeats his delivery well, so he could reclaim the potential that drew comparisons to Shelby Miller if he can get back in shape. Shane may wind up doing that with the Aggies, as it's unlikely that he'll go high enough in the draft to sign. One of the younger players in this draft class, he won't turn 18 until August.
