By: Dylan Hefflinger
Ohio Editor in Chief/NW Scout

Name: Layne Schnitz-Paxton
Position: RHP
Grade: 2016
Height/Weight: 6-foot-1, 185 pounds
High School: Napoleon High School
Ranking: 7th in Ohio and 71st Overall in the 2016 class

Evaluation: One of the top arms in Ohio's class of 2016. Projectable 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame. Fastball sat 86-88 mph with sink to the arm side. Some choppiness to his delivery. Throws with some quickness through a high-3/4 arm slot. Regular effort. Breaking ball showed late 11/5 action and is thrown near fastball arm speed while fluctuating between 73-77 mph. Needs to improve command and develop consistent second pitch for the next level. Also mixed in a good 77 mph changeup after an 88 mph fastball. Definite follow.
