Scouting Report

Scouting grades:: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

After beginning his college career at Henry Ford Community College, Schreiber headed to Northwest Ohio and proceeded to save 25 games in two years before going to the Tigers in the 15th round of the 2016 Draft and signing for $6,000. He has since made a quick rise through the Minors, jumping straight from Class A West Michigan to Double-A Erie en route to 18 saves in 2018. Schreiber pitched well in his return to the level in '19, earning a promotion to Triple-A in late April.

Starting from a closed setup, Schreiber hides the ball very well on his backside before delivering from a near side-arm slot. His combination of deception and extension gives his fastball, which can reach 92 mph, extra late life that enables him to beat hitters up in the zone. He pairs his heater with a tight slider, and together they make him tough on right-handed hitters. While he's also comfortable throwing it backdoor to lefties, he'll need to develop a more consistent changeup to be successful against lefties at the highest level.

Despite the nature of his delivery, Schreiber is able to repeat it well and generally does a good job throwing strikes. He misses a healthy number and induces a lot of weak contact, showing the potential to handle a late-inning role in the big leagues.
