6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 83-84 mph, heavy with sink. The spin pitch is solid in shape, sitting 69-70 mph. The changeup is a solid pitch, sitting 75-76 mph. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is repeated, solid in tempo and he displayed glove pull as he makes his way into foot strike. The arm works clean and he finished through his pitches. The projection is solid and he shows a feel for all 3 of his pitches. His best days are in front of him. Positionally, he worked out in the outfield, throwing 84 mph during the outfield portion of the workout. The bat had an exit velocity of 97 mph. The setup is even and the front foot is open. He uses a big leg lift as the ball approaches and the swing is long to contact.

6-foot-1, 185-pound, strong, durable athletic frame. Already filling out, put together well. A right-handed hitting two-way player, at the plate, even feet, spread out approach, hands are relaxed at the shoulders. The swing is level through the zone, more of a pull approach, gets rotation at times, needs to stay middle a bit more. The exit velocity was clocked at 92 mph, showing plus pop to pull side. Defensively, threw an easy 85 mph from outfield, super clean arm action form higher slot. The approach is under control, gains ground. Off the mound, pounded the zone with a three pitch mix, fastball reached 82 mph, heavy ball with bore run to it. The breaking ball shows plus spin, with velocity clocked at 72 mph. The delivery is clean, weight over backside, loads up, direction is inline and works downhill. Worked a clean inning with multiple swing and misses. Love him off the bump, plenty of room for growth.

Exit Velocity: 92 mph

Arm Velocity: 85 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.22

Shurtleff is a big, strong 6-foot-1, 180 pound prospect. The right-handed hitting outfielder had the highest exit velocity at this event at 89 mph off the tee. He hits out of a balanced, square stance, with the hands high above the back shoulder. He uses a controlled load to get into a strong hitting position. The swing itself is flat and quick to and through the hitting zone. He stays on plane well through contact, creating a lot of hard line drives during batting practice.

Defensively, he showed a strong, quick arm in the outfield with a velocity of 86 mph on his throws. The feet are athletic as he moved into the fielding position. He breaks down behind the ball, with the glove out in front. He transitions well to the throwing position, creating a good line with the target. The arm-swing is quick and he finishes through the play with good direction.

On the mound, he creates good balance and direction to home plate with his delivery.  He uses a high leg kick to gather before separating the hands. The arm works out of a higher ¾ slot that creates run on a fastball that ranges 81-84 mph. The breaking ball was 66-67 mph, with tight spin. He also mixed in a change-up at 71-73 mph that showed good action.

Shurtleff is a talented young two-way prospect. He shows a strong arm and athleticism in the outfield. The bat has a chance to be a big-time tool and there is definite arm talent on the mound. He’s a guy to get out and see now.

Tee Exit Velocity - 89 mph
