Shewmake was promoted to Double-A Mississippi on Friday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 21-year-old seems to be progressing quickly after being selected 21st overall in the 2019 draft and will make a two-level jump. In 51 games at Low-A Rome, Shewmake slashed .318/.389/.473 with 39 RBI and 37 runs.
Shewmake is slashing .318/.378/.453 through his first 36 games for Low-A Rome with one home run, four steals and a 13:22 BB:K.
The 21st overall pick in the 2019 draft, Shewmake's age (21 years old) and college background make his early success in the Sally League less of a surprise than the expected outcome, but it's still a lot better than the alternative. Atlanta is leaving him at shortstop for now, but a shift down the defensive spectrum remains possible as Shewmake fills out and matures.
