BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 John Shelby III was seen as a potential fourth outfielder coming into the year, but he hit the metaphorical wall at Double-A.
2009 He’s only the second John T. Shelby in major league history, but the third in his family. Son of the 1980s center fielder knicknamed “T-Bone,” “Treybone” is a power-and-speed threat, but just like daddy his lack of plate discipline could prove to be his undoing. Shelby's K/UIBB slipped to 4.7 last year. That’s not a good sign for player who finished the year as a 23-year-old in High-A. Also a bad sign: this former second baseman re-imagined as the team’s future center fielder made most of his starts in the left pasture in 2008. His lack of walks and slow adjustment to the outfield mark him as surprisingly raw for a college product. He’ll have to shape up quickly to maintain his prospect status.
2008 The son of the former major league outfielder, John Shelby Jr. started out a second baseman, but after moving to the outfield in June seemed to adopt an outfielder's approach, hitting for more power while getting less patient and finishing with a flourish by socking ten homers in his last month. He's not the gifted glove in center that his father was, but he might improve his route-running through the hard work he's already respected for. If he takes that season-ending hot streak into his High-A debut, he could play his way to Double-A this summer, which would put him on the fringes of the big-league picture for 2009 and beyond. That's a lot on his plate, but he's the organization's best current candidate for a homegrown Center Fielder of the Future.
2007 Despite being the son of a big leaguer, Shelby hasn`t received many favors. Undrafted out of high school, he had to settle for a second-tier NCAA program in Kentucky, before finally being claimed in the sixth round of the 2006 draft. How much you believe in his prospect status depends on how much you believe in bloodlines. Shelby has no one skill that projects as a major league plus, but the hope is that he can develop into a well-rounded player along the lines of Josh Barfield. Otherwise, he may need to take more balls at shortstop to prepare himself for life as a utility player.
