Right Fielder | Retired or Inactive Players
Shannon never has been a patient hitter. In past seasons, Shannon has been a bit of a liability with men on base. He has a natural lift to his swing, which produces few groundballs. He hits righthanders and lefthanders with equal consistency.
Baserunning & Defense
Though he managed to record his share of assists, his arm is just average. Shannon is an intelligent baserunner with average speed, but he's not a basestealing threat.
Shannon has below average skills, even for the low minors. One has to expect the Retired or Inactive Players will give him his walking papers before the end of the season.
