I think Shepherd has an underrated bat and will improve at the plate. He played 1B for Texas last season, but I think he is probably capable of playing other positions.
I watched some Texas games last season and Shepherd usually stood out as a nice hitter.
I agree. I liked what I saw from him in the WS; however, he's a 49th round pick...which means the Reds will probably have to go way over slot to get him signed. Based on previous years, that probably means the MLB office will hold up his signing until close to the deadline...if he signs at all.
