The D-backs selected Shipley out of Nevada with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. He made 12 starts after signing, reaching South Bend in mid-August. He posted a 2.61 ERA in four regular-season starts for the Silver Hawks last season and then made two more starts during their run to the Midwest League championship series.
