Wisconsin MLB Draft: Day 3 Recap

By Matt Huck
Area Scout

The 2017 MLB Draft is now complete. We have broken down Day 1 and Day 2 with notes and info on all the players with Wisconsin ties taken. Today we continue with Day 3 coverage.

Mitchell Stalsberg, LHP, Winona State (Viroqua), 2014
23rd round, 695th overall, Detroit Tigers

Scott Schreiber, 1B, Nebraska (Kimberly), 2014
26th round, 769th round, Tampa Bay Rays

2/3/14 - When talking about raw athleticism and projectability, Scott Schreiber left a lot to the imagination for pro scouts in attendance at the Super 60. Schreiber who was Wisconsin’s Gatorade Player of the Year in Wisconsin as a junior last year is also an All-State quarterback in a state more well known for its gridiron prospects than baseball players. Schreiber’s raw athleticism stands out maybe more than anyone at the event. He stands 6-foot-3, 215-pounds and is light on his feet. Schreiber ran a 6.78 in the 60-yard dash and posted a 97 mph exit velocity, a rare combination of speed and strength. Screiber’s arm also plays on the mound and at third base. He was 85 mph across the diamond and sat 89-90 on the mound. Schreiber’s upside as both a position player and pitcher could bode well for him in the draft because if he ever hits his way out of being a position player his arm would always give him a second life on the mound. One thing is for sure, Schreiber added Kimberly, WI to the travel plans of many scouts this spring. 

Caleb Boushley, RHP, UW-La Crosse (Hortonville), 2012
33rd round, 978th overall, San Diego Padres

Ryan Hoerter, RHP, Indian Trail, 2017
36th round, 1,078th overall, Pittsburgh Pirates

Report: 6/1/17 - Auburn commit. 6-foot-6, 185-pound right-handed pitcher. Hoerter dominated in his outing like he has all spring. Still receiving draft interest. Came out working 88-91 touching 92 mph in the first inning. Pounds the bottom of the zone. Settled in at 87-89 mph, still touched 90 mph in the sixth inning. Curveball got batter as the game progressed, has 11-5 shape with depth and late breaking action, showed true swing and miss potential in game. Only two balls were hit in the air all game, consistently inducing weak ground ball contact. Worked 6.2 innings allowing just four hits, no earned runs, two walks, and struck out 14.
