Schunk is slashing .300/.354/.567 with six home runs and a 29.3 percent strikeout rate in 99 plate appearances for Triple-A Albuquerque.
A second-round pick in 2019, Schunk has split time between third base (his natural position) and second base for the Isotopes. He generated buzz a couple years ago after a strong debut in 2019 and positive reports from the alternate training site during the pandemic. This could be a post-hype breakout, but as a 25-year-old with an elevated strikeout rate playing in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, Schunk offers several reasons to doubt whether he would have success against big-league pitching.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Schunk was the top Rockies hitting prospect at the alternate training site and in the fall instructional league. He is well built at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, and while he is hit over power now, his power is trending up. Schunk controls the strike zone, makes contact at a high clip and drives the ball to all fields. His bat speed reportedly improved this past season, which combined with his size and contact skill, gives him a chance to hit for 25-homer pop. A third baseman by trade (he was a two-way player in college), Schunk is now capable of handling the keystone as well, which gives him another avenue to break through with the big-league club when he is ready in a year or two. It doesn't really matter for fantasy, but it's worth noting that he got rave reviews for his leadership in addition to what he was doing at the plate and in the field.
A two-way player at Georgia, Schunk had a breakout junior year at the plate and that success translated after the Rockies selected him with the No. 62 overall pick. There might be untapped potential with Schunk now that he is committed to being a position player full time. He has a quick, whippy swing and made contact at an excellent clip (13.0 K%) in the Northwest League. His 26.9 LD% and 37.9 GB% helped make up for his pull-heavy approach from the right side. Schunk is a good athlete for a college corner infielder, and could chip in 8-10 steals, but the driving force behind his fantasy value will be a potentially above-average hit tool with above-average power and home games in Coors Field. While Colton Welker and Tyler Nevin have outgrown third base and Ryan McMahon seems like a great long-term fit at first base, Brendan Rodgers and Ryan Vilade linger as internal competition if Nolan Arenado gets dealt.
