Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

Shawaryn starred at Maryland, setting single-season and career records for wins (13 and 30) and strikeouts (138 and 307), but an early-season slump in 2016 dropped him out of first-round consideration. After the Red Sox saw him strike out 16 in the Big Ten Conference tournament during his final college start, they drafted him in the fifth round and paid him a well above-slot $637,500. He has zoomed through the Minors, reaching Triple-A last August and averaging 9.7 strikeouts per nine innings through his first three pro seasons.

Shawaryn relies heavily on a plus low-80s slider that he also can turn into a mid-80s cutter whenever he wants. His fastball isn't overpowering at 90-94 mph with some run and sink, but he'll bust it inside against right-handers and then sweep sliders and cutters away from them. He can back-foot his slider against left-handers and also hold them in check with his fading changeup.

Shawaryn's low-three-quarters arm slot adds deception and life to his pitches without hampering his ability to throw them for strikes. His control has improved as he has risen through the Minors, enhancing his chances of becoming a durable back-of-the-rotation starter. He made his big league debut in June, initially serving as a multi-inning reliever who lived off his slider.
