    Schmitt turned down a pre-draft offer of $500,000 out of high school and went on to become one of the nation's top two-way players at San Diego State. He hit two home runs and pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the final game of the Cape Cod League championship series last summer and was named playoff MVP. Schmitt had surgery on his right meniscus this spring and was never quite at full strength for the Aztecs, but he still hit .323/.386/.452 and notched six saves before the season shut down. Schmitt has the look and the tools of a major league third baseman. He’s an above-average defender with excellent hands, and he has plus arm strength with the ability to throw from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Schmitt is a polished hitter with good rhythm and balance and makes hard contact, but he is prone to getting jammed and is still learning to tap into his above-average raw power. Evaluators believe Schmitt could be a middle-of-the-order hitter with the right offensive development, but he has a fallback as a power reliever if his bat stalls. Schmitt looks natural on the mound with a low-90s fastball that explodes late, an average splitter in the mid-80s and a usable curveball. Schmitt is in the mix to go as high as the second round and will certainly be gone by the end of the fifth round.
