John Shields Scouting Report — INF, State College of Florida

Prospect: John Shields
Position: Infielder
Organization: State College of Florida
Height/Weight: 6’2”, 180 lbs.
Bats/Throws: L/R
Age/DOB: Freshman (Two-Year JuCo)
Acquired/Hometown: Tampa, FL (Plant HS)

Timed 4.06 and 4.09 up the line from LHH box; 4.37 on the turn; 7.21 second base to home (leadoff).

Notes — March 26
Sneaky good size; maybe a little bit of room to add some muscle onto frame, but decently strong guy already with good, athletic movements underlying everything he does. Tough kid; good athlete … Showed tendency to get rotational at the plate in my look; needs to work to really stay through the ball and drive it rather than getting too rotational around the ball and pull off of it. Good bat speed; showed ability to hit the ball hard when he does stay through it; line drive guy … Versatile defender with athleticism who can work all over the diamond; played second base in my look and seemed functional enough there. Perhaps a future as a super utility man at the next level; speed and athleticism will aid profile greatly and if he’s able to prove versatility at his four-year stop after State College of Florida, John Shields could be a decent prospect find for a pro organization in a future MLB Draft.
