Shelby will most likely hear his name called in the first ten rounds of the Draft on Thursday. Baseball America has Shelby listed as the 260th best prospect eligible for the Draft. When his swing is on, Shelby can move quickly through the zone with solid power. Shelby dropped down draft boards after he struggled to make plays at third and saw his strikeouts grow late in 2016.
