    Scouts saw Schellenger in high school and dreamed on the potential in his broad-shouldered, 6-foot-5 frame even then. He earned the closer job at Seton Hall as a sophomore, striking out 70 batters and walking 21 in 45.2 innings. Schellenger opened eyes in the Cape Cod League as a rising junior with control of a mid-90s fastball and a plus slider. His stuff wasn't quite the same in his junior year, as he sat more in the low 90s and pitched off of his slider with his fastball command lagging behind. He missed time with biceps tendonitis and pitched more at 89-92 when he returned. A team drafting Schellenger will hope that he can return to the form he showed earlier in his amateur career, when he looked like a potential shutdown late-inning reliever.
