Erik Schmidt is a 2005 RHP from Pennsylvania. He is a 5'9" right handed pitcher with great enthusiasm for the game. He throws from a full sidearm release point with a long, slinging arm action. Schmidt’s fastball topped out at 75 mph with the expected running action when down in the strike zone. Schmidt also throws a 65 mph small slider and will change speeds on his fastball. When he’s down in the zone Schmidt can be very effective but he can’t afford to get the ball up in the hitting zone. Schmidt also had a nice tournament with the bat, getting a couple of sharp hits, including a triple to left field. He runs very well and has a playable arm from the outfield. He's a crafty pitcher who can fill the zone, but might be an even better prospect as an outfielder.

Erik is an athletic 05 RHP/ OF. From East Strousburg, PA. Eric showed above average HS arm strength from the outfield. At the plate Erik uses a narrow stance to produce above average HS bat speed & showed the ability to hit the ball to all fields. He needs to use his bottom half better. He has limited power due to a lack of bottom half rotation. On the mound Erik uses a low 3/4 slot and good arm speed to produce good arm side run. He changes his slot on his slider but gets good 10-4 tilt. He needs to develop a change up and the ability to throw it for strikes. He attempts to turn it over to get arm side run but the ball tends to ride out of his hand. He's not big but he has a live body to work with.

Erik Schmidt - Schmidt is an "05" RHP/OF from Pennsylvania. He has a medium athletic looking frame that has room for additional strength gain. He runs very well, 7.2 on the slow track in Ft Myers converts to 6.9 or better under good conditions. He proved that with good home to first times. On the mound he threw mostly mid 70s with excellent command of all his pitches. His breaking ball was in the upper 60s. At the plate he arm bars, but shows some bat speed and power potential. He hit a couple balls real hard back up the middle. With a little work on his swing he would be a good college OF prospect.
