2018 is Schmit's third season with the Canaries. The 26-year-old hit a combined .297/.364/.388 for the Birds in 2016-17, making a mark with his infield defense and speed at the leadoff position. Schmit was a 26th-round draft pick by the Minnesota Twins in the 2014 MLB draft, spending two years in their organization. Canaries manager Mike Meyer called Schmit "a must-sign" for the 2017-18 offseason. He is expected to be back atop the Canaries' lineup in 2018.
