    Scouting Report

    7/23 Update: Schobel will receive the full slot. Schobel's slot was adjusted from $1,001,500 to $1,002,000 when there was no compensation pick awarded for Michael Conforto. 

    With the 68th overall draft pick, the Twins selected Tanner Schobel, a draft-eligible shortstop from Virginia Tech. 

    Schobel is undersized at 5' 10", but was the Hokies #3 hitter and had success with the bat both collegiately and in the Cape Cod League. Schobel has a little bit of power in his small frame, but it's only to his pull-side.

    Defensively, Schobel has been solid as a shortstop, but has played plenty of second base and third base too. While he will get every chance to stay at shortstop, he may end up filling a multi-position utility role. 

    The Twins on Schobel:


    Schobel, 21, hit .362/.445/.689 (85-for-235) with 68 runs scored, 18 doubles, one triple, 19 home runs, 74 RBI and 35 walks in 59 games for the Hokies in 2022, leading the team in home runs, RBI and total bases (162). He attended high school at Walsingham Academy in Williamsburg, Virginia where he was a four-time All-State selection and led the Trojans to a pair of state titles.
