Past reports of the 6-foot, 195-pound two-way talent were centered more in the 88-91 mph velocity range. However, on this recent look Schanaman took that to a whole new level with a bolt up to 95 while working in the 92-94 band throughout the second inning. He settled in at 90-92 for the remainder of his 5.1 IP, 92-pitch outing. His main weapon is a cutter/power slider in the 82-85 mph range and he showed the ability to expand to his glove side when needed for the situation. He will also mix in a slower version (80-81) of his slider early in counts as a get me over. His changeup is his fourth pitch and rarely used. However, he got a big double play ball from a left handed hitter to squash a potential rally in the third. The batter, Connor Pohl, had homered earlier in the game off a Schanaman fastball. With more stuff than performance this season (4-2, 5.91 ERA, 56.1 IP, 56 H, 11 HBP, 22 BB, 61 SO) Schanaman has the talent to be considered on Day Three.
