JJ Schwarz’s Scouting Report

Schwarz has the potential to go 1-1 in the 2017 draft with his power potential being his best tool. He has a quick and easy swing to go with a great approach at the plate. He knows how to get on base, walking almost as many times as he struck out in 2016. Schwarz will need to improve his arm strength if he wants to stay behind the plate at the next level.

Strengths

  • Sound approach
  • Walks about as much as he strikes out
  • Above average contact potential
  • Plus power potential, his best tool at this point
  • Average to above average defensive skills
  • Versatile can play both catch and play first

Weaknesses

  • Slow
  • Saw both his average and power tail off in 2016
  • Needs to improve arm strength

Quote

“I was confident in myself. I knew I was gonna hit because that’s something I’ve worked on my whole life with my dad, I’m really confident with my hitting. I was just trying to come in and make an impact and help the team win. I didn’t think it would be that much of an impact.” – Schwarz
