A two-way player his first two seasons, Schwartz improved dramatically this year after focusing exclusively on the mound and significantly cut his walk rate. He walked 6.4 per nine his first two years, splitting time between the rotation and bullpen, and 3.3 per nine this year with 10.3 strikeouts per nine. Most scouts expect him to end up in the bullpen, but some say he looks like a conversion guy just scratching the surface of his ability on the mound, and he has thrown enough strikes to have a chance at starting. His fastball sits 88-92 mph and touches 95 with armside run. His slider flashes average but often plays as below-average. He shows surprising feel for a changeup that has average potential, though it must become more consistent as well. Schwartz will need to continue to improve his control. He throws slightly across his body with a head snap. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder is a 22-year-old junior with a strong, athletic build that doesn't offer much projection.
