Daniel Schneemann was selected by the Cleveland Indians with the 1003rd pick (33rd round) of the MLB Draft.

The junior shortstop Schneemann was named the 2017 WCC Defensive Player of the Year and was an All-WCC Honorable Mention in 2017. He also made the All-Freshman team in 2016.

Schneemann hit .288 in his BYU career with 5 home runs and 76 RBIs. He also stole 16 bases in 17 attempts. Schneemann was always a steady hand on defense, finishing with a .961 fielding percentage for his Cougar career.

His production at the plate, menace on the base path and work in the field will be difficult for BYU to account for next season should he move on and begin his professional career within the Indians organization and forgo his senior season in Provo.

According to Schneemann’s father, Patrick, it is decision time for Daniel:

Congrats to Daniel Schneemann on his selection in the 2018 Major League Baseball Draft!
