Shaffer Earns Praise

Chris Mellon from Baseball Prospectus had a nice write-up in today’s Monday Morning Ten Pack.  Because the entire write-up is behind their pay wall, here is a snippet of what Mellon had to say about Shaffer:

While Shaffer may always have some trouble on the inner third due to his longer arms, the right-handed hitter has the talent to do damage when he’s keeping his front shoulder square to the pitcher and his mindset on going up the middle and to right field. He won’t be able to fall back on pure talent, and must prove that the ability to adjust is part of his offensive game.

Mellon went on to review how Shaffer’s season has gone to-date and what he can work on as he makes his second trip out to the Arizona Fall League later this month.
