Shuster is one of the fastest-rising pitchers in the 2020 class. His ascension started with a strong summer in the Cape Cod League. After walking more than five batters per nine innings his first two seasons at Wake Forest, Shuster showed dramatically better strike-throwing ability with Orleans, walking just five batters in 32 innings and also boosted his fastball velocity. After mostly sitting in the 88-92 mph range, Shuster came out this spring with a fastball up to the 96-97 mph from the left side. Shuster has impressive starter traits to go along with that velocity, especially with his improved control. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound lefty has a plus changeup and a developing slider that could become an average pitch as well. The dramatic improvement in both his stuff and control has vaulted him up into the second-to-third-round range, and it wouldn’t be shocking for some scouts to have first-round grades on him.
