Happy Wednesday, Athletics Nation!

It looks like the A’s stadium quest is firmly back in “who knows?” territory. Several stories came out yesterday detailing the failure to get a stadium bill approved in the Nevada legislature, complete with speculation on what’s next (spoiler: nobody knows).

Meanwhile, interesting stories abound in the A’s farm system. Yesterday, Martin Gallegos at highlighted the buzz that unranked prospect Max Schuemann is generating after an excellent start to his 2023 season.

Schuemann has been doing it all on offense through 43 games in Midland and Las Vegas, slashing .299/.400/.490 with 11 stolen bases. A’s assistant GM and director of player personnel Billy Owens lauded Schuemann’s plate discipline and versatility, calling him a “nice off-the-radar prospect.”

Schuemann is indeed versatile defensively, having played all three outfield positions as well as shortstop, second base, and third base this season. Gallegos notes that the 25-year-old’s performance has put him “into the conversation for a call to the Majors” this year, so keep an eye out for Max Schuemann in green and gold.
