Shorto signed with the Cleveland Indians in 2012 as a non-drafted free agent, and made his professional debut in the most recent minor league season, before being released last July. Shorto's debut was delayed when he was diagnosed with lymphoma shortly after signing with the Indians. He spent the past two years undergoing cancer treatment, and now, at 19, hopes to pick up his baseball career where he left off. A member of the Heat's development squad, Shorto will look for the coming year to make an impact on the diamond.
