Comments
Fastball:Schmidt's fastball sits at around 91 mph.
Slider:Schimdt wasn't able to throw his breaking stuff in his first start, partially because of temperatures that were around 30 degrees..
Changeup:An above-average offering to go along with his fastball.
Control:Usually his forte, but Schmidt never got a good feel in his three innings against Louisiana Tech, walking five.
Physical Description:Big, tall, workhorse of a lefty.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:command of his fastball and changeup, usually. With the cold and under a strict pitch count of 65, he never got going in this start.
Weaknesses:His breaking stuff. Schmidt will have to show the ability to throw his slider more consistently to stay high on draft charts.
Summary:Schmidt deserves a bit of a mulligan because of the conditions and the fact that it was just his first outing of the year. But he'll have to show that slider as the season wears on.
