Micah Schilling, 2b

School: Silliman Institute. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Clinton, La.
B-T: L-R Ht.: 6-0 Wt.: 185 Birthdate: 12/27/82
College Commitment: Louisiana State.
Scouting Report: Schilling has dropped a bit this spring as clubs have focused on his shortcomings. He won't play shortstop as a pro because he doesn't have the arm, feet, range or actions. What he does have is one of the smoothest swings in the draft, maybe the best the state has seen since Will Clark was playing his high school ball in New Orleans. A Louisiana State recruit, Schilling reminds area scouts of former Tigers second basemen Todd Walker and Mike Fontenot, and is considered a better hitter than those two first-round picks were at the same stage. He doesn't get out of the batter's box quickly but is a decent runner once he gets going. Schilling will be an offensive player at either second base or left field. He still could go late in the first round, with the Athletics, Braves and Indians showing the most interest.
