Shawaryn split last season between Greenville and Hi-A Salem, his first full season in the minors after a brief 15 IP in Lowell in 2016. He started 26 games across both leagues, going 8-7 with a 3.76 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 169 Ks in 134.2 innings pitched (53.1 in Greenville, 81.1 in Salem). This performance put him in the lower half of most Sox Prospect Top 10 lists during the offseason.
He was promoted to Portland to start this season and has made two starts so far, he's 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA and 8 Ks in 10.2 IP. According to SoxProspects, he's a fastball-slider-changeup pitcher, with his FB sitting in the low-90s, topping out at 95. Ultimately projects to be a backend rotation starter or a bullpen arm. Given the thinness of the Sox farm system, he bears watching by default.
