Sean's one sentence analysis: The senior righty used excellent control to subdue opponents during his college career and will need to lean heavily on it to succeed in professional ball.

2011 Northwood League Pitcher of the Year
#1 pitcher in the Northwood League (College Summer Ball)

Schwartz transferred from Minnesota State-Mantako to Oklahoma City University for his senior season due to financial reasons. He dominated at both during his college career (and basically everywhere he pitched). In his 4 college years between MS-M and OCU, he went 35-9 with a 3.34 ERA, 8.39 K/9 and 1.88 BB/9.

"Schwartz went 10-2, 2.20 at Division II Minnesota State-Mankato, and his good control of an 88-92 mph fastball should help him dominate NAIA competition." - John Manuel, Baseball America Small College Preview (1/31/2012)
