Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2006   Fresno State       15.0   9.6   9.0   1.1   0.0   10.2   10.80                  
2007   Fresno State       93.0   8.9   3.1   2.9   0.8   10.3   5.42          

Scheppers has two plus pitches: a mid-90s fastball and a power slider. He’s got an ideal pitcher’s frame and he impressed coaches with a strong showing in fall practice in 2007.

Scheppers is inexperienced. He threw fewer than 110 innings in college and only pitched for one season in high school. He needs to develop a third pitch to project as a starter in the pros. He’s given up more than one hit per inning in his college career.

The Future:
Mid-first round pick.
