Age: 18 (01/22/1998)
HT/WT: 6’3″/190 lbs
Jack Schneider is a 2017 OF/RHP with a 6-3 190 lb. frame from Owensboro, KY who attends Daviess County. Large frame with a lean, athletic build and wiry strength throughout. Frame projects to support additional size and strength while maintaining athleticism. Ran a 6.16 sixty yard dash. Primary outfielder with smooth paced actions while closing on the baseball. Clean glove actions while picking up baseball with an extended, smooth paced glove to hand transfer. Huge arm strength from a mid three-quarters arm slot, topped at 98 mph. Throws creating very good carry to the bag with accuracy. Right handed hitter with a spread, straight stance. Hands load to a deep, strong position while weight shifts back. Level, line drive swing plane that flashed solid leverage through extension at times. Swings with intent creating very good bat speed through the zone with developing barrel feel. When squared, baseball jumps off barrel with very good backspin and carry to the gaps. Very projectable tools all around that will continue to improve with maturity and repetition. Good student. Committed to Murray State. Named to the 2016 Ohio Valley Showcase Top Prospect List.
Rated #23 On Top Prospects of Kentucky 2017 By Baseball America
Jack Schneider is very raw at the plate, but he can absolutely fly and chuck it. 6.3 60. 96 off the bump, 98 from OF. #Mets take him as OF.

Happy to see Jack Schneider taken here. Like it for #Mets. Was a bit of a sleeper this year. Among the most explosive athletes in the class.

I like it, a two-way threat in the outfield, with the ability to throw off the mound. He was injured in his senior year, and is committed to a smaller school so he may take a bonus around the 200-300K range.
