2023 MLB DRAFT: Luke Scherrer, C — Yucaipa (CA)

Committed to Cal Poly, the Golden State native provides a 6-foot-1, 210-pound target behind the plate, although Luke Scherrer is also an intriguing arm on the mound should a team want to give him a look as a two-way player.

FSS Event History: Scherrer attended the San Diego Regional Combine at the very end of 2021, where he worked as both an RHP and his more customary position of catcher. While the scouting staff liked him on the bump, it was behind the dish where he drew the best grades, showing the potential for plus power.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 480

Joe Doyle on Scherrer:

Scherrer really burst onto the scene at Area Code Games putting together a really impressive week at the plate with upside behind the plate as well. Scherrer is a strong-arm backstop with an above average throwing arm and good explosion out of the crouch. The bat is hitterish right now, but the frame and torque suggests some game impact is coming. Right-handed high school catchers are a tough demographic to set draft value on, but there’s Day Two value here.
