6/16/20

6-foot-1 160-pounds, young frame, long projectable body, strength looks to be coming. Looks like a ball player & athlete. Hits from an athletic squared base using a leg kick to transfer energy. Showed some bat speed with a high positive attack angle, looking to drive the ball in the air.  Gets into the hitting zone late with low rotational acceleration. Defensively, showed some versatility being able to play multiple positions. Hands & speed at SS might stick him behind the plate in the future, ran a 7.65 60-yard dash. Athleticism is good behind the plate with loose easy actions & flexibility, being able to get low in his stance effortlessly. Showing good direction with a quick release to 2B on throws, turning in the top pop times of the day at 1.95-2.05 at 71mph. Schaefer also pitched on the day showing upside on the mound. Easy delivery with short quick arm stroke. Worked his FB 80-83mph with 20in. of vertical movement. Threw 3 pitches for strikes. Projectability makes Schaefer a strong follow.
