1/20/14 – Schmidt is an athletic 5-foot-10 150-pound right hand hitting 2B/3B.  He posted one of the best positional velos of the event at 82 MPH.  He has a clean, quick transfer that produces accurate throws across the diamond.  He throws from over-the-top with his arm action and has the ability to work through ball.  At the plate, Schmidt has a gap-to-gap approach and a level bat path that produces consistent line drives.  He has an athletic stance and  good balance throughout the swing.  His exit velo was 79 MPH and he runs a 7.61 60. 
1/20/14 – Schmidt showed continued progress on the mound as much as he did in the field at the event.  The 5-foot-10 150-pound right hander showed command of three pitches in the zone for a strike, including a fastball at 83 MPH.  He has a quick arm and throws from a ¾ arm slot.  His fastball registered 81-83 on the gun late cut.  His curveball has an 11/5 shape with a late break at 67-69 MPH.  He throws with change-up with near fastball arm speed at 73-75 MPH.  Schmidt showed why he could climb in the rankings in the 2016 class.
8/25/13 - Schmidt showed to be one of the more polished players at the event, with plenty of room to progress. The 5-foot-9, 140-pound Schmidt showed ability to command three pitches on the mound, a fastball that topped at 79-mph with cut action, a late breaking 11-to-5 breaking ball (66-69 mph), and a 71-72 mph change up thrown with near fastball arm speed showing arm side run and sink action. Schmidt comes from a ¾ arm slot with quick arm speed. In the field, Schmidt displays sure hands with rage to both his backhand and glove hand sides. His arm action is short and quick, delivering a top throw of 75-mph across the field. At the plate, Schmidt’s hands start high and he brings them down to the ball, creating a level swing plane with extension through contact while hitting the ball to all fields.
