2022 MLB Draft: The sophomore-eligible Schobel is a high motor athlete with the tools and makeup to match. He's a solid defender with above average lateral range, a quick release and better than average arm strength when he gathers. His throws are strong and accurate across the infield and he can throw from all angles. Schobel projects to remain at shortstop in pro ball and he also shines at the plate. He finished the 2022 season with a .362/.445/.689 with a team leading 19 home runs and 74 RBI. His top batted ball exit velocity was 106. He isn't as famous without a Team USA CNT attached to his resume, but compare his physical size (5-foot-10, 175 pounds), tools and production to 2021 Cincinnati Reds' 1st rounder Matt McLain (UCLA). The two also have similar Cape Cod League statistics, albeit in different years. Also, each draft is different, but Schobel possesses more tools and greater college production than ACC alum Logan Warmoth (North Carolina) who was the 22nd overall pick in the 2017 Draft. This is NOT to say Schobel is also a first rounder, but it's a reasonable comparison and there's no doubt that the Hokie shortstop has elevated his draft status from preseason Day Three to likely early in the third round. He profiles as a middle infield utility type at the Major League level.

Schobel is a high motor athlete with the tools and makeup to match. He's a solid defender with above average lateral range, a quick release and better than average arm strength when he gathers. His throws are strong and accurate across the infield and he can throw from all angles. Schobel projects to remain at shortstop in pro ball and he also shines at the plate. His current season slash sits at .362/.451/.670 with a team leading 14 home runs and 60 RBI. During the Louisville series, Schobel scuffled a bit, going 2-for-12, but he competed at the plate and struck out just once. His top EVs were 106.5 mph (1B), 100 (GO), 98 (F8), 97 (F7) and 96 (1B). He isn't as famous without a Team USA CNT attached to his resume, but compare his physical size (5-foot-10, 175 pounds), tools and production to 2021 Cincinnati Reds' 1st rounder Matt McLain (UCLA).

At 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Schobel is a high motor athlete with the tools and makeup to match. He’s a solid defender with above average lateral range, a quick release and better than average arm strength. His throws are strong and accurate across the infield and he can throw from all angles. Schobel projects to remain at shortstop in pro ball. He also shines at the plate. There was some length to his swing earlier in the season, but it has now been shortened up, generating even more bat speed. His current season slash sits at .376/.456/.714 and a team leading 13 home runs and 53 RBI. Schobel isn’t as famous without a Team USA CNT attached to his resume, but compare his physical size, tools and production to 2021 Cincinnati Reds’ 1st rounder Matt McLain (UCLA). The two also have similar Cape Cod League statistics, albeit in different years. Also, each draft is different, but Schobel also has more tools and greater college production than ACC alum Logan Warmoth (North Carolina) who was the 22nd overall pick in the 2017 Draft. This is NOT to say Schobel is also a first rounder, but it’s a reasonable comparison and there’s no doubt that the Hokie shortstop has elevated his draft status from Day Three to likely early Day Two.

5-foot-10, 170-pound frame. Schobel is a high motor athlete with the tools and makeup to match. Solid defender at shortstop with above average lateral range, hands work, and quick release with accuracy across the infield. At the plate is where he really jumped out last year as a freshman and continues to do so now. In his first at bat Sunday he hit a hard liner right at the left fielder, followed it up with a hit-by-pitch, then a backside RBI single with two strikes, and a double down the left field line in his final at bat on the day. Schobel does not swing and miss much, shows ability to use the whole field, and makes adjustments with counts. He cut down on his stride with two strikes in his third at bat, sending a hard single through the right side for an RBI. He is a guy that you know what you are going to get when he shows up at the park every day.

Schobel is listed at 5-foot-10, 170-pounds and he is an absolute ball of energy on the field. Had a chance to watch him in high school at Walsingham Academy and not much has changed. The athleticism, high IQ, and versatility that he displays on the field is fun to watch. At the plate Schobel starts from a slightly open stance, hands are relaxed, and he loads back in sync with the pitcher. Hands are short to contact and does a nice job matching planes with the swing. Schobel reached base in all four at bats, including back to back doubles in the middle two at bats. In his second at bat he turned on the pitch for a double down the third base line and followed it up with a double to deep left center on a 3-1 pitch in his third at bat. Not much swing and miss on the day and appeared to have solid plate discipline. In his fourth and final at bat he worked an 0-2 count and turned it into a walk after fouling off a few pitches and did not chase on a couple of breaking balls down. Above average runner, turning out a 4.57 and a 4.55 turn time on his doubles. Defensively Schobel played shortstop the entire first game. In pregame and in-between innings he displayed his ability to defend and throw on the run. He made it a point to vary slots, throw on the run, and change angles of throws to display his versatility. Soft hands, quick and clean exchange on pivots, and accuracy across with average-above average arm strength. Long term probably more suited for second base, but is more than capable of holding his own at shortstop.

Cape Cod- Put together a strong summer with a .306 batting average, good for second on the team. He's a front foot hitter with strong hand/eye. He's a bit undersized at 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, but he can drive the ball and has been an impact hitter so far in his short college career. As a true freshman for the Hokies this past spring he slashed .279/.359/.441. He's also a dynamic athlete who could play a variety of positions if asked, but he's a natural middle infielder who can pick it. Like Wallace, Schobel will likely be a 2022 draft-eligible by age in what looks to be a very strong class soph-eligibles.

2/17/18

Preseason All-State: Schobel is 5-10 with an athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it, he hits from the right side from an open athletic stance. Strides on line, loads back with a wrap, has rhythm to his swing. Explosive lower half and keeps some balance. Short and quick to ball, works slightly uphill with a whippy bat, very strong at contact with good extension. Showed good approach working middle of the field and barrel awareness, has doubles power with potential to continue to develop more, exit velocity was 91. On the infield, clean feet, rounds the baseball and fields with soft hands and a wider base. Works through the ball, clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a longer arm action and some effort, infield velocity was 85. Ran a 4.28 home to first.

5/22/17

Compact athletic frame. Quick twitch athletic with versatility across the diamond. Hits from an open setup. Smooth load to hitting position. Aggressive swing with a short path and quick hands at the plate. Quick arm action with some carry across the diamond on throws. Took to the mound and was up to 81 sitting 79-80 in his relief appearance. One to keep an eye on with his quickness and athleticism in the 2020 class.
