Scott Schebler was taken in the 26th round of the 2010 draft by the Reds, out of Des Moines Area Community College. That last season of college ball he hit .446/.529/.877 with 20 HR. Those are strong numbers, and he was ready to transfer to Division 1 Wichita State for the 2011 season, but was snagged by the Dodgers in the 26th round, who convinced him to go pro.
From 2010 to 2015 Schebler rated as one of the Dodgers Top 25 prospects. climbing as high as #8 after the 2014 season. With his plus raw power and solid outfielder skills, he was a very good prospect who improved as he moved up through the system.
He was added to the 40-man in 2014, and in 2015 would get called up twice to the majors and getting 36 at bats.
Before the 2016 season he was traded to the Reds, part of the Todd Frazier deal.
Schebler split the 2016 season between AAA and the big league club. He hit .311/.370/.564 with 13 HR over 289 at bats in AAA, and .265/.330/.432 with 9 HR over 257 bats with the Reds.
He will start the season in the Reds outfields, probably their starting right fielder.
Not bad at all for a guy who was a 26th round pick out of a community college.
