Cool. Thanks for the reply.
A few weeks ago I had Scheppers high on my board but the recent high walk totals is a bit concerning as you said. As for the second pitch, according to milb.com's draft reports, Scheppers has shown a plus slider at times but as far as it being a consistent pitch who knows. With that said, I still wouldn't complain if the Reds drafted him though I prefer guys like Posey, the two Beckhams, Smoak (Lance Berkman anyone?), Alvarez, or Matusz.
