Age: 22
Born: 12/27/1988
Hope Tappan, NY
Height: 6-4
Weight: 240
Bats: Right
Throws: Right
Drafted: 49th round , 2011
How Acquired: Draft
College: Cornell

My usual trek to find the lowest draft pick signed by the Sox. Not much remarkable stat wise. In his senior season-- 3-4 , 3.63 ERA, K/BB 38/20, 51.2 IP, 51 H. No scouting report has been found yet, not even on soxprospects. Looks like roster filler. Starts the year in GCL. From a Cornell athletics news about his drafting.


Jadd Schmeltzer '11 has been selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 49th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. He becomes the second Cornellian chosen in the draft, following incoming freshman Roberto Suppa, who was taken on Tuesday in the 26th round by the San Diego Padres.

A right-handed pitcher from Tappan, N.Y., Schmeltzer was the team's Pitcher of the Year as a sophomore and as a senior. This past season, he posted a 3-4 record with a 3.63 ERA, including a shutout of Ivy League champion Princeton in his last collegiate start.

In addition to his time on the mound, Schmeltzer saw extensive time in the lineup for the Big Red as a designated hitter and at first base. For his career, he hit .230 with a .438 slugging percentage and a .325 on-base percentage. He also posted a career fielding percentage of .938.

Schmeltzer graduated in May from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

My word. This interview from the Cornell Daily Sun is a must read. This guy sounds like a piece of work. A couple of highlights:

Do you have a specific team you want to play for?

I mean, Iím a Yankees fan so Iíd love to be with the Yankees. But there are tons of different teams that are showing interest. Like the Boston Red Sox, the Pittsburgh Piratesó

Go with the Pirates out of those two for sure, if you call yourself a true Yankee fan.

(Laughing) Yeah.


And apparently you have a twitter?

Yeah everyone check out [email protected]


8. What would you wear to a business-casual event?

(Laughing) This year, I wore sweats and my Kobe Bryant jersey.


10. Apparently you want to get a tattoo next year?

I want to but Iím probably not because my parents will kill me. Iím 21, and still live in the house, so I think I have to go with my parentsí rules. And I think it was kind of a phase and then I just got over it.

What was the tattoo going to be of?

It was actually going to be a Puerto Rican flag. Iím half Puerto Rican, half Austrian.

Thatís a unique combination.

Yeah, when I was growing up, they called me ďThe Port-a-Jew.Ē So I was going to get the Puerto Rican flag and then the Star of David to replace the star on the flag. And then I was going to get the MLB logo outlined on the flag.

So essentially it was just going to be Jadd in tattoo form.

(Laughing) Yeah, it was pretty much going to be me: Jewish-Puerto Rican baseball player.

0-2, 4 saves, 2.92 ERA, 15 G, 24.2 IP, 21 H, 9 BB, 12 K.

So what does most of the GCL roster do between now and extended spring training? Do they go home?

It's a general (and naive) question, but I'm especially interested in Vincio, Kapstein, Swihart, Jerez, and Schmeltzer.

Unless they are asked to attend Fall Instructional in Fort Myers, they are in off-season mode and begin the off-season conditioning [and training] program they were given before they departed Fort Myers. Why are you interested specifically in those 5 players?

Interview with Jadd Schmeltzer

He was a very interesting guy to interview.

Dr tooth,

Jadd proved last year in the GCL he has the ability to pitch for the Red Sox Organization. An injury plus some minor adjustments to the system has led to statistics that don't jump off the page, or would they? In the month of August, Since coming off the DL, he has a 0.00 ERA with 8.1 innings pitched and 2 wins recorded. His WHIP is just over 1 and has His best strike out to walk ratio since college.

This is a young man who is just learning how to be a pitcher and was a highly recruited first baseman. Coming from Cornell where it wasn't optimum baseball conditions there wasn't many opportunities for him to form his craft. Although he graduated from a top University and as you mentioned he is very intelligent and WILL have a degree to fall back on after his career is over. You make fun of this instead of praising this young man for being able to follow his dreams. Jadd will leave baseball one day and probably make more money in the business world no doubt, but mocking a man for taking an opportunity to play a game as a post grad shame on you.

I also will leave you with this step into the batters box against a 6ft 4in 230lbs man who throws 95mph and then write about him. That would be a piece I would love to read.

Hi Jadd. (Or Jadd's dad, or girlfriend, or mom)

Dr. Tooth adopts the last pick of the Sox draft every year at SoSH, and reports on how the prospect is doing. Tooth only does this for the Red Sox "Mr. Irrelevant" and it gets the community here invested in the progress of the pick.

Had Jadd been a true top prospect, he would have been picked 35 rounds or so higher. Nevertheless, Tooth reports the news, and the speculation about being released probably came from a final round pick getting destroyed over and over again in short season a ball, at an advanced age.

Suggesting that Tooth would have problems at the plate vs a pitcher in professional ball is pretty obvious. 99% of us here are are not professional ballplayers. That would be akin to suggesting that "Jadd atempt to diagnose a torn ACl while a MD with 20 years of experience stands there" or sugesting that Jadd try to "survive a round with a hungry Mike Tyson." Grow up.

First off yes I am Jadd's brother.

I wasn't suggesting for tooth to be intimidated by him. I was suggesting to see all of his upside which the organization must also see. Jadd was expected to begin in GCL and moved up to Lowell at the start of the season. This would suggest they must see something. They also gave him the opportunity to work out the kinks after having a rough go at before the injury.
To report he is bound to get released without knowing any real facts to me suggest a unprofessional out look. So I suggested he step up to the plate to see what the organization must see.
If you knew anything about how the draft works and Division 1 baseball you would understand prior to this past draft Senior's in College have no options and usually without an outstanding season they fall very far down in the draft because of the risk reward is minimal. Teams are not Looking to waste money on a kid to lock him up when he can't return or like HS players who have the option to go to a university. I also said he was a highly recruited first basemen in HS not suggesting he didn't deserve to be drafted in the round he was.
I have enjoyed Tooth's post and continue to read about all the minor league players but felt like defending a statement that I found insulting especially because of him being a sibling.

I apologize that I didn't realize he had gone to GCL to rehab. Sometimes these fly under the radar with lower round picks plus he's still listed on Lowell's 7-day on not on GCL roster on milb.com

4 G, 8.1 IP, 10 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K.

I admire the fact that Jadd's brother came here to defend him. I have seen a lot of low prospects (in the several years of following them) get let go after any type of rough stretch. They just don't have a ton invested in them and many of them are basically roster fill. For every Blake Maxwell and TJ Large (both got to AAA) that I have followed, there has been a Jeff Vincent and Trygg Danforth (one year and done). On another note, if the Red Sox are making personnel decisions based on this thread, the organization has much bigger issues than they already have. My goal was not to offend any family members. Just giving an opinion base on numbers. Injury info at the lower levels is not really accessible with later round picks. I have no connections to the FO . I just run ads at LaLacheur which gives me no pull in roster decisions
