Brandon Scheffler is a 2006 catcher from Elgin, Illinois, with a stocky build at 5'9", 180 pounds. He hits from a wide stance with a high leg kick. He has good balance during his swing when he doesn't over stride and step out. He has a very strong upper body, and showed good power at times. He moves well laterally behind the plate, and has excellent blocking skills. He has good balance, and receives the ball with soft hands, and has a strong arm with accurate throws. Brandon is a solid defensive catcher, and has a lot of potential to develop and play a high level of college ball.

Scheffler is a small "06" catcher who lacks the arm strength and bat-speed presently to match up with players a lot bigger. But he showed ability as a receiver that does not often come without working at it. His set-up, soft hands and presentation of the ball showed that he has caught for a while and likey he has received good pitching. At the plate he showed some good hacks and put the ball in play well. He has lots of time to develop his size and strength to match his feel for the game. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the next couple years. Brandon is an excellent student..
