Shawn Newman is a 2005 LHP from Jacksonville, FL. Newman is a 6'2" left handed pitcher with a good strong athletic body. He pitched three effective innings in Fort Myers with very unusual pitching mechanics. Newman has a big leg kick but little gather and a long, flat arm stroke. He opens his front shoulder very early, generating lots of deception, but negating some of the power and leverage he can get from his body. His fastball was 78-79 mph and he maintained his velocity well. Newman threw 82 mph from the outfield and looks like he has much more natural arm strength. He threw a few breaking balls early but started throwing a 70-71 mph slider in the third inning that had some good depth and bite to it. Newman also threw a pretty good change up. He struck out four hitters in three scoreless innings. He could end up being a very good college lefty. He also swings the bat well. Projects very well.

Shawn Newman -- Newman is an athletic looking left hander with long limbs and some projection to his strength. He threw 3 innings in Fort Myers, mostly working with a fastball in the 77-79 mph range that he was able to move around the strike zone and get some sinking action on. Newman mixed in a very occasional curveball and change up, but mostly concentrated on spotting his fastball and letting hitters get themselves out. Very good "05" lefty!

Shawn is an interesting 2 way player. He is a crafty lefty who gets good armside run on his fastball. He's not overpowering, so he relies on good command and pitch variety. He doesn't run exceptionally, but he's an excellent outfielder because he can read and react so well. At the plate he has a nice fluid swing and shows good plate discipline. He doesn't get fooled easily and stays back well on the off speed pitches. We like his bat! He needs to add some strength and velocity but he is just an 05 and has a chance to become a very good prospect.
