Schrier is the latest in a long line of standout shortstops at JSerra (Calif.) High that includes current Cubs prospect Chase Strumpf and 2017 No. 1 overall pick Royce Lewis. Schrier played for both the USA Baseball 12U and 15U National teams, including winning MVP of the WBSC 15-U World Cup in 2018, and starred at both the PG National Showcase and the WWBA Championships last year. Schrier stands out for his pedigree and all-around game more than any one tool. He battles through at-bats, drives the ball with solid bat speed, flashes above-average raw power and makes the routine plays at shortstop. He is an above-average runner with an average arm and has advanced instincts that put him in good positions to make plays. Schrier can be extremely streaky and teams have widely different assessments of him based on when they saw him. He has weeks where he’s crushing everything, but other times he shows a crude approach, struggles to hit breaking balls and has difficulty covering the outer half of the plate. Sometimes he uses the whole field, and on other ocassions he is extremely pull-heavy and prone to swinging and missing. Schrier has a strong, mature body and projects to move to second or third base at a higher level. He has decent hands and projects to be an average defender who converts the routine plays. Those who like Schrier see an instinctive player with a track record of performance and consider him a candidate to be taken in the top three rounds. Others see a player without any plus tools or physical projection remaining and feel he should go to college. He is committed to UCLA.
