2020 DRAFT:The top two-way talent in this year's draft, Schmitt broke out in the Cape, impacting the game with three plus-to-better tools in his raw power, arm strength and defensive abilities. With sure hands, above average range and plus arm strength with accuracy from all angles, a case could be made that he was the top infield defender in the Cape. He's also an aggressive base runner with average speed underway. His 65-grade raw power translated to five regular season home runs and three more in just 29 at-bats during the Cape playoffs. However, in his two-plus seasons at San Diego State, Schmitt has struggled to turn his raw juice into game power with only six home runs in 444 career at-bats. On the bump he throws with a short arm action, showing a low-90s sinker with the ability to touch 94, while mixing in a fringy 82-83 slider. He can also cut his fastball at 85-88 mph, driving it into left-handed hitters. His best pitch is a plus 82-86 mph split with a super low 750-1000 rpm spin rate. It's an out pitch and generates repeated swing/miss. Schmitt has emerged as a legitimate top two round candidate, similar to recent West Coast two-way star Tanner Dodson (California), who was the 71st overall pick in 2018 draft and he can also draw a two-way comparison to current MLer and SoCal native Michael Lorenzen of the Cincinnati Reds, who was the 38th overall selection out of Fullerton State in 2013.

8/19/19 HITTER:A two-way talent and one-time sleeper to many scouts outside the West Coast, Schmitt broke out in the Cape, impacting the game with three plus-to-better tools in his raw power, arm strength and future defensive abilities. With sure hands, above average range and plus arm strength with accuracy from all angles, a case could be made that he was the top infield defender in the Cape. He’s also an aggressive base runner with above average speed underway. His 65-grade raw power translated to five regular season home runs and three more in just 29 at-bats during the playoffs. After a strong sophomore season for the Aztecs at the plate (.315/.415/.450 with 5 HRs) and on the bump look for Schmitt to continue his improvement and gain helium on scout’s follow lists. As noted above in his pitching writeup, Schmitt has emerged as a legitimate Day One talent. (Seifert)

8/19/19 PITCHER:A two-way talent, Schmitt took the bump after playing the first five innings at third base. After a brief warmup, he was off and running with a short arm action, showing a 91-92 sinker during his first inning of work. He would later settle in at 88-90 mph while mixing in a fringy 82-83 slider and a plus 82-86 split (750-1000 rpm spin rate). During a second look in a save situation, Schmitt pitched at 91-93, touched a 94 and unleashed a 96 mph bolt to finish a hitter. He can also cut his fastball at 85-88 mph and drove it into left-handed hitters. In addition to his 90s heater, his best pitch is a plus split. It’s an out pitch at any level and generates repeated swing/miss. He has a great feel for the bump and really just the game of baseball itself. After his display of talent as both a hitter and pitcher, he is no longer a “sleeper.” Schmitt has emerged as a legitimate Day One talent, even more valuable than recent West Coast two-way star Tanner Dodson (California), who was the 71st overall pick in 2018 draft.
