2016 PBR Future Games - Team Pennsylvania
4/11/18 The 6-foot-1, 195-pound two-way Connecticut commit started the game on the mound and went five innings. While command was not a major issue (3 walks), Schwartz was deep in counts most of the night ending with 95 pitches thrown. He sat comfortably at 85-87 touching 88 and 89 several times early. The first time through the order his slider at 76-77 was his primary secondary pitch. The second trip through the lineup he utilized his effective changeup at 77-80 consistently.
8/4/16 Physical 6-foot-1, 195-pound two way prospect. Sat 81-84 while topping at 85 mph from a high 3/4 arm slot on the mound. Also displayed command of a mid-70s changeup and a low-70s slider with an overhead rocker delivery. Moves well defensively (7.19 60-yard dash) and flashed 88 mph arm strength from the outfield. Right-handed hitter displayed present power and went barreled the baseball consistently over the course of the weekend in game action.

4/18/16 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-handed hitter went 1-for-3 with a sharp single to left field, a swinging strike out and a roll over ground ball to short. Sophomore flashed present power during BP driving balls to and over the wall. Ran a 4.44 home-to-1B on ground out.

2/14/16 Developed 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame. Explodes off the rubber with a quick arm out of an up-tempo delivery that incorporates an overhead rocker. Struggled to find a consistent release point, as he was spinning off hard with significant head whack that caused his hat to fall off routinely. Even though the delivery is raw and will require some clean-up, there's no ignoring his fastball that checked in at 87-89. A low-70s curveball tended to back up on him due to his release point issues, although the best pitch he threw the entire bullpen was a solid 11/5 CB out of the stretch when he stayed more under control and on-line to the plate. Will need to maintain better arm speed on his change-up.
Physical right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a heel raise stride. Displayed a very short swing path, with quick hands and an explosive lower half leading to a bat exit velocity of 96 mph. Schwartz' hands work well through contact and finish high creating some backspin and present power. The sophomore ran a 7.09 60-yard dash and flashed advanced arm strength (92 mph) from his outfield position.
5/9/15 Schwartz sat 79-81 from a high 3/4 arm slot with solid leg drive and a repeatable delivery. The freshman pounded the strike zone and effectively pitched to all four quadrants of the plate. Schwartz will need to continue to develop his 67-69 mph curveball and 71 mph changeup, but showed the potential for significant velocity gains moving forward.

2/15/15 Schwartz's 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame belies his youth. At the plate, the right-handed hitter employs a lift-and-replace stride and flashes quality bat speed (88-mph exit velo), especially for his age. While he would benefit defensively from fielding the ball out away from his body, he showed good feet and an 82-mph arm across the diamond. Schwartz also ran a 6.97 60-yard dash.
Schwartz has the makings of being a highly coveted power arm in this class. The righty sat 79-83 with some hip coil action to his delivery out of a high 3/4 arm slot. The freshman gets a lot out of his lower half and his frame projects for velocity spikes in the coming years. Schwartz also displayed a 69 mph changeup at similar arm speed that lacks movement at this stage of his development. The pitch that will require significant improvement is Schwartz' curveball. The young right hander slows his arm speed and casts the pitch at 64 mph.
