J.J. Schwarz, C, Florida
The Cubs already have a great offensive catcher in Willson Contreras, but Schwarz brings the whole package.
Last season, Schwarz slashed .290/.397/.456 with seven home runs and 60 RBI while committing zero fielding errors. This helped propel Schwarz to 2016 All-Tournament Team honors. Did I mention he also made the 2016 academic honor roll?
The most improved part of his game is his patience at the plate. In 2016 he recorded six more walks than the year before even though he played in less games.
In his two full-season career as a Gator, Schwarz slashed .311/.398/.543 with 25 home runs and 133 RBIs. In 2017, he’s on pace to match those numbers once again.
