The top high school prospect out of the Northwest this year, Schroeder is an immensely athletic, 6-foot-2 righthander with arm strength and a three-pitch mix that will have teams interested in him among the top 100 picks. A three-sport athlete, Schroeder was the best pitcher on the Royals team at last summer's Area Code Games, where he threw strikes with all of his pitches and showed a potential wipeout curveball. This spring, Schroeder has picked up right where he left off, regularly sitting 92-93 mph with a fastball that includes both power and sink. He has also shown a second breaking ball this spring in a slider, and while both of his secondary offerings are currently fringe-average, many scouts think both could turn into plus pitches down the line thanks to his arm speed and feel for spin. Given his arm slot and strength, a power slider seems to be the pitch most evaluators are banking on as his future go-to offering. While he doesn't have a ton of projection left to offer, his physicality and plus arm speed have teams believing he'll throw even harder in the future.
