PBR Scout Day: Dry Pond Baseball - 2020 Position Player Evals


Matt Payne
North Carolina Director of Scouting

Organizational Scout Days allow teams from across North Carolina to showcase their players for PBR Scouts and the over 800 college coaches and universities that subscribe.  On Wednesday September 11th, Dry Pond took over 25 players from their organization through a full pro-style workout for Prep Baseball Report.

Position players went through a full workout, running a 60, working out at their defensive position, and going through a full offensive evaluation with an exit velocity testing station.  Pitchers threw a controlled bullpen, allowing PBR scouts to see the mechanical setup, arm speed, arm action, and stuff.  PBR scouts were able to document analytical statistics while also beginning to put together full player evaluations.  Each player will also have a video from the workout added to their PBR Profile in the coming weeks.

Below are the evaluations of the 2020 position players in the Dry Pond program.  Inside the evaluation is a look at their performance from the day.  A video from the workout can be seen in each player's PBR Profile.
