A 40th-round pick of the Astros out of high school, Shaw has shown a plus fastball in the past when working out of Dallas Baptist's bullpen, so evaluators were excited to see Shaw move the rotation full-time this year. The big (6-foot-5, 242 pound) righthander has been more solid than spectacular as a junior. His fastball has generally sat 88-92 mph this season bumping to 93-94 early in games, although he's touched 96-97 at his best. Neither his breaking ball nor changeup project as more than fringe-average offerings. Shaw has some stiffness to his delivery, but a team picking him can send him out as a starter with the knowledge that he can also slide into a power reliever role.

Mets 12th-round pick Joseph Shaw from DBU disappointed scouts this spring with less-than-expected stuff but has shown A-A stuff in past.

One time I'd like us to take one of these guys and just fast track them as a reliever.

I was hoping we were going to do that with Bashlor.

Of course, fastball velocity and arm strength are not the only things that define a starting pitcher, and plenty of guys stick around throwing 88-92. Those guys usually have top-flight breaking stuff or a tremendous ability to change speeds or exquisite command. Shaw doesn’t have any of those things. His curve is mediocre, coming in around 75 miles-per-hour with wobbly break, and he’ll also throw a telegraphed changeup that’s just too soft. And while he throws strikes, his command is fringe-average.

Mechanically, he’s a mess, and the Mets won’t have to look hard for things to fix. He’s too drop-and-drive in his delivery, so beginning his momentum before separation. He doesn’t stride far enough and lands stiffly and abruptly on his landing leg. His arm action is too long, his forearm tenses too soon, and he pronates too late, putting stress on his shoulder and elbow. He doesn’t really know what to do with his glove side. He’s a big guy and doesn’t appear to be the most athletic of pitchers, so I do wonder how much of an ordeal t will be to clean up those mechanics.

Although they have very, very different frames, Shaw reminds me quite a bit of Ty Bashlor, the Mets’ 11th-rounder in 2013. Bashlor was short, but could throw 97 in short bursts, had poor mechanics, and mediocre offspeed stuff, although Bashlor’s breaking ball showed a little more promise than Shaw’s. Like Bashlor, and despite his size advantage, I just cannot envision Shaw anywhere but a bullpen.

As long as this guy doesn't randomly get 550k... I like it.
