The A's have selected Schwartz with the 132nd overall pick of the 2014 first-year player draft.
According to MLB.com, Schwartz focused more on pitching as a junior at Niagra, leading the MAAC in strikeouts and earning second team All-Conference honors. Adding a slider, Schwartz became more effective on the mound as he was able to put his fastball in the strike zone more frequently without being punished by opposing hitters. It's unclear if the A's intend to give him a look as a starter as he begins his professional career.
