9/20/15 - Sneaky strong build, 6-foot, 170-pound infielder. Right-handed hitter, open stance, short stride back to even, can get more from lower half. Made hard contact in BP, bat strength, uphill path lifts the baseball with gap pop. 86 mph exit velocity from the tee. Went 1-for-3 with a single in game play. Defensively plays through the baseball, fluid footwork with softer hands, possibly profiles at third base. Over the top slot, average showed occasional carry, 77 mph across the diamond. 4.65 runner down the line.

4/20/19:Schwecke performed well last summer in the Northwoods League, earning solid placement on Midwest follow lists as an offensive-minded shortstop with a steady, if unspectacular, glove. He's grown his profile this spring thanks to impressive production (.376/.441/.564 with 3 home runs and 12 doubles in 152 plate appearances) and a slightly more compact swing that has given rise to more consistent hard contact and a better ability to utilize the whole field (after skewing heavily to pull last summer). There's limited over-the-fence pop in the profile and bat speed is a concern – particularly given some of the issues Schwecke had handling velocity with wood last summer. Still, a more compact swing and a disciplined approach, which has helped produce more walks (16) than strikeouts (15) through Milwaukee's first 32 games, can go a long way towards alleviating those concerns and pushing Schwecke into Day Two consideration. Defensively, the shortstop moves well and shows a solid arm with decent footwork around the bag, but the range is just okay and he has had more trouble executing this spring than anticipated. At present, he projects best as a potential utility player who can handle all three infield positions and may move well enough to handle the outfield should his drafting team opt for building in that flexibility. He fits well in the 7th to 10th Round range – particularly to a team that views him as a capable shortstop at the next level – and could even come off the board earlier to a club leaning heavily on collegiate production analytics.

10/15/18: Junior middle infield with sneaky strong muscular build, rigid at times. Right-handed hitter, strong hands and forearms, easy loading action, on time. Path works slightly uphill, strong hands at contact, occasional shoulder swing. Showed easy pop from pole to pole off the bat, ability to handle the wood bat, comes off hard in BP, some topspin contact to pull side. Smooth quick hands defensively, showed body control and above average athleticism to play on the move, short over the top arm action with carry, can play from multiple slots. Likely profile at second base at the next level. Hit .318 as a soph, led the team in runs (43), hits (69) and RBI (39), slugged .419. (Nielsen)

8/1/18: Schwecke has a chance to be an intriguing prospect in the Horizon League in the spring, as I came away impressed with his skill set. Schwecke is coming off back-to-back solid campaigns for the Panthers, hitting .306 as a freshman before hitting .318 last season with 11 doubles, three home runs and finishing the spring with 19 stolen bases. This summer, the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder, is hitting .298 with nine doubles, five homers and double digit stolen bases. In the ASG, Schwecke showed athleticism and a good, durable frame. Solid defender who made one terrific defensive play on a liner that he sprawled out for, while almost turning a beautiful double play with an impressive ball flip. The UWM junior also competed in the Home Run Derby, where he hit just one home run, but certainly showed power potential. The overall package from Schwecke is impressive. He can defend, he has an accurate arm and he has speed and athleticism with a frame with more power potential. (K Rogers)
