Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 70 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 40 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Sherfy left the University of Oregon in 2013 as the school's all-time saves leader, with 40. Since joining the D-backs in the 10th round of that June's Draft, the right-handed reliever has had an up-and-down path to the top of the system, though he has added 66 Minor League saves, 50 of those coming over the last two seasons as he pitched his way to a 2017 Major League debut and a spot on the D-backs' postseason roster.

Sherfy showed exactly what he's capable of doing over the last couple of years after struggling in Double-A back in 2015. He misses a ton of bats, largely with a two-pitch mix. The athletic reliever goes right after hitters with a fastball that sits in the mid-90s and often touches higher, backing it up with a breaking ball that misses a ton of bats and serves as a true out pitch. He has a below-average changeup, but he'll throw it effectively to give hitters a different look.

An ability to deliver his two main weapons for strikes more consistently has been the key to Sherfy's success and rise to the big leagues. Perhaps his ceiling is that of a setup man, but he always pitches with intensity and he's clearly not afraid to take the ball in the ninth inning.
