Thoughts

Raw is a great way to describe Justus Sheffield. He has talent and much bigger fastball than his frame would elude to. He clocks in at 94-96 MPH with his heater and can touch 98 when pumped. His change-up and breaking ball have potential to be plus pitches with development. His breaking pitches have the ability to ride multiple planes which lead to tremendous swing and miss potential. At 20, he is still refining his craft and has a tendency to lose track of the strike zone from time to time. He projects, with refinement, to be a middle of the rotation starter. The intriguing note is that the Yankees have three to five interesting pitching prospects and all could be MLB ready in 2017, 2018, and 2019. There is a slim possibility that the Yankees could have a 90s Braves type rotation that are all young and under team control for years.
