Shuck made the all-Big 10 Conference team as both a pitcher and an outfielder. Some scouts like him as a Sam Fuld-type outfielder, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound gamer who gets the most out of fringy tools. Shuck is a contact hitter who struck out just 24 times in three college seasons, and he can use his solid speed and fine instincts to steal bases. He also plays a quality center field and throws well, though his power is limited. Others prefer Shuck on the mound, where he can locate his high-80s fastball and changeup to both sides of the plate. He needs to be more aggressive rather than nibbling at the corners, and his breaking ball is just a show-me pitch.
