View Draft ReportSchuyler moved from the outfield to catcher to fill a need for San Diego after the departure of Riley Adams and held his own. Once touted freshman catcher Adam Kerner began to assimilate to college baseball, Schuyler started spending more time in left field. Whatever position he played, Schuyler hit. He led USD with both a .347 average and .493 slugging percentage. Schuyler has an average arm and receives well behind the plate, and he is a good enough athlete that he can play all three outfield positions, with left field his best spot. Offensively Schuyler balanced at the plate, manages his at-bats and has some usable pullside power. Schuyler lacks a plus tool, but his versatility, athleticism and a makeup defined by toughness have evaluators intrigued, and some think he has a chance to reach the majors as a bench player.
