WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Schalk ranked 50th in a weak Illinois draft class.  He is very athletic, with good strength.  He was mostly a first baseman and also pitched, but the Pirates drafted him as a right fielder, which is where he profiles best due to his strong throwing arm and ability to move around in the outfield.  He has quick hands and squares up on the ball well.  He’s a projectable hitter, but he might be a tough buy out of his UAB commitment.
