1/26/20

6-foot-2 170-pounds, lean, athletic frame with long limbs and projection. Ran a 6.89 60-yard dash. Two-way player. Hits from an average balance base, using small forward move. Level swing with line-drive contact, 86mph exit velocity. Gap to gap approach. Athleticism plays in the infield with low effort actions and strong arm across the diamond at 84mph. More than capable HS third basemen & hitter. Showed solid tools as a position player, but his future lies on the mound. He pitches with a controlled, repeatable delivery and quick arm from a higher slot. He gets downhill with a high-spin fastball that sat 83-87 and touched 90 with riding life through the zone. He mixes in a short curveball in the upper 70s that shows more downer break and has shown glimpses of being a swing-and-miss pitch in the past. Current tools & athleticism should make him a high follow as a pitching prospect.

6/12/19

6-foot-2 155 pound frame with broad shoulders and long levers. Fastball up to 84 from a ¾ slot. Fastball plays up with easy arm action. Downhill plane with arm side run to both sides of the plate. Glove side fastball is his best pitch, letting it run back over the plate. Breaking ball at 70-72 has depth and shows glimpses of being a quality pitch but lacks consistency. Change up is thrown with good arm speed and fade. Fast arm that as he gets stronger, velo will match arm quickness.

10/14/18 - 6-foot-1, 145 pound, projectable frame. The combination of arm strength and athleticism has always intrigued and now that he’s begun to add some broadness in his shoulders the likelihood that he becomes a high-end arm only increases. At the plate, starts from a wide set-up with some present bat speed. Consistent line drive approach, 84 mph exit velocity. On the mound showed a repeatable delivery with a FB sitting 79-82, T83 mph. Low-effort delivery with clean, quick arm circle. Easy to project velocity. Tended to pull secondary offerings to the glove side on the look, but has previously shown feel for both in game action. Breaking ball sat 68-71 mph, flashing tight spin and changeup was thrown at 73-76 mph.

6/6/18 - 6-foot, 130-pound frame. High waist, very long legs. Schiefelbein has always shown an interesting combination of athleticism and projection and it appears that’s starting to come to fruition. With his ceiling likely highest on the mound, Schiefelbein ran his fastball up to 82 mph with a short, clean arm action from a high ¾ arm slot. Dynamic lower half, long stride, separates well. Very linear to the plate, cuts off rotation/deceleration path some. Changed up was thrown at 68-69 mph flashing sinking action. Curveball ranged from 62-65 mph with some depth. At the plate, hit from a wide base with minimal weight transfer and stride. Barrel works down and away from body some, gets on plane early. Looking to get extended at contact; 78 mph exit velocity. Showed solid actions on the infield. Looked comfortable ranging to balls to both sides of his body; 78 mph infield velocity. Schiefelbein also turned in an impressive 6.99 60-yard dash which makes ceiling on mound potentially very high.

1/28/18 - Thin, immature 5-foot-11, 130-pound frame. Has the type of body that might develop into an ideal pitcher's frame down the road. He shows a workable arm action, getting on top of the ball quickly on the back side and the ability to fill up the strike zone. Ran his fastball up to 79 at 130 pounds and projects for lots more velo in the future. Shows advanced feel for 73-74 mph sinking changeup with good hand speed. Shows some feel to hit with a wide solid base and line drive swing plane ; 77 mph exit velocity. 3B profile on defense. Posted 7.25 60-yard dash, showing solid athleticism which adds to his projectability.

1/7/18 - Currently a long ways off physically, but shows feel and a clean arm action on the mound to go along with some hitting ability. His present 5-foot-11, 130-pound frame will certainly undergo significant change in the coming years, and significant projection remains. Ceiling appears to be higher on the mound where he threw his fastball downhill through the bottom of the strike zone at 75-77 mph. Almost 3-piece arm action, but maintains fluidity and gets on top of the baseball quickly on the back side. Flashed short tight breaking ball in the upper 60’s that could become put away pitch as it becomes more consistent in terms of rotation and shape. 70-71 mph changeup was in the strike zone and flashed fading action. Offensively, hits from balanced setup, creating a wide base with his stride. Slight uphill path to high finish; some explosiveness in lower half. 77 mph exit velocity. Does a solid job playing underneath and through the baseball on the infield. Third base actions. Higher arm slot makes it difficult to throw on the run; 76 mph infield velo. Solid 7.29 60-yard dash for present body type.
