2020 Draft Reports: College Prospects 51-100

Prospects

The 2020 MLB Draft will take place June 10-11. The first day will start at 7:00 p.m. ET and consist of the first round and Competitive Balance Round A—the first 37 picks. The second through fifth rounds (123 picks) will begin at 5:00 p.m. ET on June 11. The signing deadline is August 1.

Regardless of how the picks shake out, the 2020 MLB Draft will be historic. With just five rounds, it will obviously be the fewest players selected ever, and the dynamics of such a short draft is likely to give us a higher rate of college picks than we’ve seen recently. That will all become evident upon the draft’s completion on June 11. For now, you need to know who the prospects are and we’ve got you covered.

Below you’ll find reports on every college player ranked 51-100. For a combined ranking of high school, junior college and 4-year college prospects, please see the Prep Baseball Report Draft Board, where there is also video on these top prospects.

Wake Forest lefthander Jared Shuster (Aaron Fitt)

51Jared ShusterLHPWake Forest
After an all-star summer in the Cape, Shuster picked up this spring where he left off. In four starts and 26.1 innings, he struck out 43 and walked just four. Armed with a fastball up to 95, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound southpaw also shows a plus changeup and significant signs that he has learned to spin the ball. With short and sharp break at 80-82 Shuster is able to miss bats and generate some swings and misses. The breaking ball doesn’t have much depth, which is due to the push and collapse in the lower half of his delivery. His fastball hums along mostly at 92-94. His bread and butter is a low-spin changeup; a plus pitch at 79-82. Thrown with fastball arm speed and producing good depth, it also induces swings and misses and he often doubles up with the pitch. Shuster works quickly and challenges hitters. With a compact, short and controlled arm circle, he does not have an ideal arm action, but it’s not a major concern; he gets to where he needs to be and he hides the ball in back really well. Projected as more a mid-Day Two talent heading into the spring, Shuster likely caught enough helium to float into the top three rounds.
