Schutte is a projectable, young 6-foot-5, 210 pound right-handed hitting infield prospect. The former JR Futures Games participant hits out of a narrow stance with the hands set high. The load is triggered by a small leg lift, allowing the weight to stack over the back leg. The bat-head whips through the hitting zone, producing a lot of loud contact and yields the highest exit velocity of the day, 101 MPH. 

Defensively, Schutte was 78 MPH across the diamond. The feet are choppy as he worked to get into a position to field. He transitions through the ground ball well and gets into a good throwing position. He finishes through the play, in line with the target and shows a quick arm.

On the mound, Schutte looks like he has tightened up his already simple delivery. Though he works primarily out of the stretch. He’s shortened his leg kick to allow himself to get balanced better at the top. As he begins down the mound, he separates well and gets good direction toward home plate, leading to more consistency within the zone. The arm works out of a higher, over the top slot, producing some late sinking action with a fastball that sits 76-78 MPH. The breaking ball has tightened up since the summer. The pitch has more of a late, downward bit and sits 65-67 MPH. The change-up is a good pitch at 67-72 MPH. The arm-speed is good, along with the action.

It’s evident that Schutte has gotten stronger since the summer. There’s noticeable muscle on his 6-foot-5 frame and it showed up throughout this event.

Exit Velocity- 101 mph

6-foot-4, 195-pound right-handed hitting first baseman and pitcher. The body moves well as he ran a 7.19 sixty at the event. The feet and glove are active at first base and shows a solid feel for the job. He threw 76 mph across the diamond.  The bat has plus life to it. The setup at the plate is even and he uses a pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches. The hands are thrown to the ball and he powers the bat. On the mound, the fastball sat 76-77 mph with some downhill plane to it. The spin pitch is 58-60, big in shape. The changeup is a developing pitch.  Good prospect as a hitter. 

INF Velocity-76 mph

A  physical young 6-foot-3, 180 pound right-handed hitting infielder shows some serious strength.  He had one of the hardest tee exit velocities at 92 mph.  The stance begins tall and square to the pitcher.  As he begins to load, he moves into a more squatty position with the weight getting to the back leg.  The bat-path is direct to and through the hitting zone.  The hand-speed really shows in his swing, in turn creating some eye popping juice.

Defensively, he was 73 mph across the diamond.  The feet are deliberate in getting him into a solid position to field.  The glove is in a good spot, out in front of the body.  He transitions through the ground ball well and gets into a good throwing position.  He finishes through the play, in line with the target and shows a quick arm.

On the mound, he works primarily out of the stretch.  The movements to get into the balance point are short and controlled.  As he works down the mound, the direction toward home plate is good and the arm-speed shows.  The arm works out of a higher, over the top slot, producing some late sinking action with a fastball that sat 70-75 mph.  The change-up is a good looking secondary pitch.  The action was late and sat 61-64 mph.  He also mixed in a breaking ball that looks to still be a work in progress at 67 mph.

This was the second time seeing him in a month.  At a young age the physical strength and the tools are definitely evident.  I’m really looking forward to seeing how he progresses.

Tee Exit Velocity- 92 mph

INF Velocity- 73 mph
