Timed 4.11 and 4.12 out of the LHH box in mid-April 2018 look.

Notes — April 10-12
Slap hitter with an opposite-field approach at the plate; watched him for a full series, and saw him pull just one ball — a groundout to second base where he broke his bat. Orientation to opposite field, will slap and run. Enough barrel control to hit the ball in the air that way too, but without much authority … Patient hitter with a pretty good understanding of the strike zone. Will work the count to draw a walk; teases bunt and will use it to keep infielders honest. Decent foot speed still and can make bunting a legitimate part of his game. Not much of a weapon at the plate, though, beyond ability to work counts with very good plate discipline … Average outfielder; speed plays up role there, but lacks truly powerful arm. Fits best in left field; won’t play much center field in New Orleans (or Miami, when he gets back there) because of Magneuris Sierra and a few other young prospects filling the gig. Role player at this point in his career; twilight, but maybe some value.

Well past final form with no upside/projection remaining. North of 30 years old, wasn’t on the Miami Marlins 40-man roster to start the year, and on the down swing of his career; it’ll take an injury/roster crunch for JB Shuck to see significant big league time. Playing it out on MiLB free agency deals for the last two seasons after last seeing big league action in 2016. Up-and-down profile who will likely fill out a big league roster on a short-term stint.
