Steven Shell Report

Steven Shell, RHP, Anaheim Angels
Drafted 81st Overall (3rd Rd), 2001 Draft, HS, El Reno, OK
Bats R/Throws R
21 YO, 6'5", 195 lbs

Shell is a pitcher who developed a lot in his second season in the California League. He has a good fastball, a nice curve, and good command of both. He performed very well for Rancho Cucamonga, posting a 3.59 ERA with 190 K's to only 40 walks in 165 1/3 innings. He only allowed 151 hits, and while he allowed 19 home runs, that tends to come with the territory in the Cal League.

AA will be a real test, as more advanced hitters might be better able to handle his low 90's fastball.

ETA: Early 2007
3 1/2 Stars
