2023 Fantasy Outlook
Shuster was a first-round pick for the Braves in a 2020 Draft class which also included Spencer Strider and Bryce Elder. While Shuster might have been passed by both of those guys, he's certainly a very good prospect in his own right, having posted a 3.29 ERA and 145:38 K:BB over 139.1 innings between Double- and Triple-A in 2022. The left-hander was much better at Double-A Mississippi than he was at Triple-A Gwinnett and he could be more of a back-end starter if he can't rediscover the zip on his fastball that he showed at Wake Forest. Shuster has a pretty high floor as is, though, and looks to be nearly major-league ready. Read Past Outlooks

Picks up second win
PAtlanta Braves
May 31, 2023
Shuster (2-2) earned the win Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks across 5.1 innings during a 4-2 victory over the Athletics. He struck out one.
ANALYSIS
Shuster has made four straight starts since being recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in mid-May. He's finished at least five innings and allowed three or fewer runs in each of those appearances. However, walks remain an issue for the rookie left-hander, who holds a questionable 21:19 K:BB over his first 30.2 career innings. Regardless, the 2020 first-round pick figures to see plenty of work at the big-league level with Kyle Wright (shoulder) and Max Fried (forearm) not expected back from the injured list until July. Shuster's next start is scheduled during a three-game homestand versus the Mets.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Shuster, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound southpaw from Wake Forest, was one of the biggest risers up draft boards prior to getting selected by Atlanta with the No. 25 overall pick in last year's draft. He dramatically improved his control in the Cape Cod League (1.41 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, 35:5 K:BB in 32 IP) and showed significantly improved velocity in four starts last spring. His fastball now touches 97 mph, sitting in the low-to-mid 90s. He has a near flawless delivery, so he could very well hold his control and velocity gains. In addition to his newfound plus fastball, Shuster has a plus changeup and a breaking ball that could be an above-average offering. It all adds up to a potential No. 2 or No. 3 starter -- a far cry from the backend starter/swingman he looked like a year ago. He should quickly become a top-100 prospect if his improved stuff is evident in his first full season as a pro.
