This past weekend on February 7th, 2021 the Super 60 took place at Mosh Performance Center in Franklin, Wisconsin. This national event is held for high school draft prospects for the upcoming season. Talent comes from all over the country to one location to showcase their skills in front of professional scouts. 

Let’s dive a little deeper into Mollers' performance from the Super 60.

The #1 ranked player in Iowa’s 2021 class and #31 nationally; Moller, an LSU commit, performed significantly well at this year's event. Overall; Moller ran an improved 7.06 60-yard dash, showed 83 mph arm strength from behind the dish, and registered 1.82-1.92 pop times during the defensive portion of the event.

Even with an exceptional showing defensively; Moller's carrying tool leading into this years draft is his ability to hit. Before his rounds of BP, he registered a 103 mph exit velocity off the tee with a wood bat.  Then during BP, Moller continued to square baseballs with authority; showing a well-rounded approach to the middle of the field.  


Moller put up a couple of noteworthy numbers during his BP round.  A registered 101.62 max exit velocity to go along with an average exit speed of 94.74.  Another number worth noting was his max distance of 387 feet shown below.

A max hand speed of 26.60 and an average speed of 23.56, both of which fall into the minor and major league levels.  Moller also showed high end bat speed at a max of 73.20 and an average of 69.34 which rank well above average for a senior in high school.  As a comparison, the major league average for bat speed is between 66-78 mph. The image below shows us where his Rotational Acceleration and Bat Speed fall.

Overall; Moller had an exceptionall all-around performance at this year's Super 60 and will be continued to followed closely through the spring for the upcoming 2021 MLB Draft.
