He has a natural lift to his swing, which produces few groundballs. He hits righthanders and lefthanders with equal consistency. He struggles away from home.
Baserunning & Defense
He might not deliver for you at the plate, but Schachtili can certainly deliver in the field. He is an exceptional fielder. His arm is accurate enough. He has below-average speed and is stiff on the basepath. He's poor on a straight steal but has some success at reading pitchers and working a delayed steal.
The Grand Rapids Red Dogs signed him to a long-term contract, but don't think they won't drop Schachtili like a hot potato if something better comes along.
