Latest Showcase Report
2005 Spring Top Prospect   Apr 30, 2005
PG Grade: 8
Shindler is a 5-10 senior infielder from Iowa with good overall strength and athleticism. What this young prospect can do is hit! He led the Iowa Spring League in hitting at .556 and kept it up by going 3-6 with a double and triple (to RCF off an 88 mph Ivan Rusova fastball) at the showcase. Shindler is simple and balanced in his approach at the plate and quick and short to the ball. He surprised us a bit with his power at the showcase as both his extra base hits were crushed over outfielder’s heads in a pro park. Shindler’s going to get his share of singles because he consistently centers the ball and is quicker to first than even his 7.1 60 time indicates. So the pop in the bat is a plus. Shindler’s defense is solid. We’ve seen him play all over the infield and he projects well to second base, although he shined defensively at third base at the showcase. His athletic balance serves him well fielding the ball and his arm strength plays. Shindler is a gamer who has all around college level tools and skills.
