LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 South Prospect Showcase  
Jon Shields is a 2023 BHP/MIF with a 6-2 198 lb. frame from Katy, TX who attends St. John XXIII. A solidly built and athletic player, Jon shows certain projectable ability at two positions and at the plate. His future will be limited only by his continued efforts to grow and fine tune his game. His current fundamental ability, especially for his classification, is highly projectable. In addition to his noticeable ability on the diamond, Jon is also a recognized, exemplary student. For his size and build, Jon ran a solid 7.69 60 yard dash. A primary pitcher, Jon shows outstanding form WITH BOTH ARMS and it is equally sound. His current ability is both rare and highly commendable and is not close to reaching its peak. His "right now" form is college ready. His mechanical ability is equal from both sides. He shows length and athleticism in and with his pitching operation. He has a sound lower half that allows him to repeat all his actions routinely. His arm(s) work(s). His three pitch mix is highlighted by his 80-84 mph active fastball. Although his RHP side appears to be his more natural side, his LHP form is just as impressive, if not more-so. His top secondary pitch is his 78 mph tumbling change-up that is thrown with fastball arm action and out of the fastball window. His 69 mph breaking ball is thrown almost exactly the same whether RH or LH. The tilt on both pitches is more slider-like and the speed and deception is more like a curveball. Both sides show impressive depth at the plate. His ability is almost, especially at this age, unheard of. His future will be shaped only by his drive to not be satisfied with the "now". He must continue to focus on his craft and ability, especially as he advances. His ability to pay attention to detail could determine his career path and his longevity in the game. Although his future probably lies with his unique ability on the mound, Jon did take his turn on the dirt as an infielder. He positions quite well and reads the ball off the bat routinely. His plus first step quickness allows his soft hands to play well. His 81 mph throwing velo gives his tosses firm plane and routine accuracy. His big frame and impressive upper body really play well at the plate. There is some controlled violence in his swing operation. He is hyper-aggressive with the stick, but seemingly always in control. He has a great, mature feel for the barrel and an emerging power swing that should continue to get better. Jon is a top prospect as evidenced by his overall weekend at this Showcase. His ceiling is almost unlimited.
