BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Between getting smacked around in the Show and a having a run-in with John Law, 2006 wasn`t the year for the former outfielder to break through and stick. He`s a functional lefty specialist, but so are a lot of guys. Shackelford is a good candidate to be outrighted or dealt before Opening Day in light of the addition of Mike Stanton to a collection of lefties that already included Bray and Cormier.
2006 Converted from the outfield to pitching in mid-2002, Shackelford became a prospect in 2004. He pitched credibly in limited exposure in Cincy in the second half, replacing Keisler in the borderline superfluous/second lefty middle relief role. Shackelford is a sinker-cutter pitcher who, given his limited pitching pedigree, could well develop enough command with experience to graduate to a more important bullpen role. He was effective against right-handed hitters as well, a very good omen.
2005 Close your eyes and think back to 2002. Brooks Kieschnick was a 30-year-old washed-up outfielder finding success in his new role as a two-way player—an effective bullpen arm who could crush the ball in key pinch-hit situations. Shackelford made the transition at a younger age, and was a 20-homer man as recently as 2001. Armed with a good cut fastball he can throw to righties, he's developing as a pitcher and needs only to tighten his command to earn a shot at a big league job. If he can also keep his batting stroke intact, this could be fun.
