    View Draft Report
    After leading California in ERA (1.99) as a reliever during his sophomore year, Shortridge made a successful transition to the starting rotation in 2018. He posted a 3.07 ERA in 16 games (11 starts) with 69 strikeouts and 13 walks in 82 innings. Scouts see more projection in Shortridge than a typical third-year college pitcher because of his 6-foot-3, 196-pound frame and immense athleticism. He is up to 93 mph at times with his fastball and throws a fringe-average, 78-81 mph slider. He also has an average changeup to give him a solid, three-pitch repertoire. With his good strike-throwing ability and remaining upside, Shortridge has the ceiling of a back-of-the-rotation starter in the future.
