WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Shockley played for NAIA Rio Grande for four years, although he missed nearly all of his sophomore season, apparently with an injury.  He put up big numbers in a good hitting environment, batting 381/484/575 as a junior, which got him conference player of the year honors.  As a senior he hit 373/495/574.  In both years he walked more than he struck out.  He was out of eligibility and signed a couple weeks after the draft.

2019
R:  183/253/207, 82 AB, 2 2B, 6 BB, 28 K, 1-1 SB

Shockley split the catching duties in the GCL with Daniel Angulo.  Shockley threw out 27% of base stealers.  He didn’t hit at all and had serious problems making contact, despite the fact that he was facing younger competition.
