Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 60 94-96 97 Plus velocity, holds it well, straight pitch, hitters pick it up early, doesn't miss many bats, poor command.
SL 45 50 82-86 90 Inconsistent offering, speed and shape will vary, can flash above-average movement and bite, below-average command holds the pitch back.
CH 50 60 87-89 89 Great fade, sells arm speed well, locates it to the arm side, generates whiffs, flashes plus.
Overall

Sheffield provides some upside as a starter, but poor command and a high-effort delivery make the bullpen the likely destination, where the fastball-changeup pairing should prove effective.

Control 30/40
Command 30/40
