Jordan Sheffield is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB). He played college baseball at Vanderbilt University.
Out of Vanderbilt University, the Los Angeles Dodgers selected Jordan Sheffield with the 36th overall choice in the Competitive Balance Round A of the amateur draft in 2016. The round is known as the Competitive Balance Round.
He was the third player selected by the Dodgers, after shortstop Gavin Lux at number 20 and center Will Smith at number 32. The pick was given to the Dodgers as compensation for the fact that they were unable to sign Kyle Funkhouser during the amateur draft in 2015.
When Sheffield was a senior in high school in 2013, the Boston Red Sox selected him in the 13th round of the amateur draft. However, Sheffield opted to attend college rather than sign a professional contract and play for them. Marty Lamb, a scout, was the one who signed him.
In 2016, he started his professional debut pitching for the Arizona League Dodgers and the Great Lakes Loons of the Midwest League. During those 8 starts, he had a combined record of 0-1, 3.75 but only threw 12 innings.
In 2017, he started the season with Great Lakes and subsequently earned a look with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League. Both teams play in the California League.
