Drafted in the 5th round (161st overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2017 (signed for $700,000)
Scherff has one of the best arms in the 2017 draft class, something that was apparent last summer when he regularly reached 95-plus in showcase outings. Scherff has one of the class' best fastballs and one of the best changeups, a plus pitch that he already throws with deception and conviction. His control wavers at times, but generally this spring he's shown an ability to throw strikes, leading scouts to believe he'll eventually have at least average control. He's working on improving his breaking ball, though it often gets caught in between a slider and a curve. This spring, he's dominated for Colleyville (Texas) Heritage High. At one point he had five perfect innings in one outing followed by five no-hit innings in his next, striking out 27 of 30 batters. Scheff's age is a ding against his draft status as he's one of the older high school players in the class; he turned 19 in February. If he decides to attend Texas A&M he will be draft eligible again as a sophomore.
