The Washington Nationals selected infielder Sheldon Neuse from the University of Oklahoma in the second round of the 2016 amateur draft.
He had been drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 38th round out of high school in 2013, but opted to attend college instead.
To begin his professional career in 2016, the Nationals assigned Sheldon to the Auburn Doubledays of the New York-Penn League.
He hit .230/.305/.341 in 36 games at third base, primarily. In 2016, he was promoted to the South Atlantic League’s Hagerstown Suns, where he hit .291/.349/.469 in 77 games at shortstop and third base.
On July 16th, he was traded to the Oakland Athletics along with pitcher Blake Treinen and another prospect, Jesus Luzardo, for pitchers Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle.
He played for the Class A Stockton Ports and the AA Midland RockHounds after the trade, hitting well over.350 in both leagues. In 117 games, he hit .323/.382/.502 with 16 home runs and 79 RBIs.
He spent the 2018 season with the A’s AAA club, the Nashville Sounds, after convincing team brass that he didn’t need any more time at AA due to his exceptional hitting at the end of the previous season.
