PBR Scout Day: East Coast Clippers - Infielders Analysis


Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR NC

Prep Baseball Report was at Ting Park in Holly Springs, NC on Friday October 18th for a PBR Scout Day with the East Coast Clippers.  Clipper players were taken through a full pro-style workout by PBR Scouts.  Offensively, players took multiple rounds of live BP and went through an exit velocity testing station in the cages.  Defensively, each player was able to workout from their respective position with scouts putting full evaluations on each player, while taking statistics on arm strength and pop times for catchers.  Pitchers threw controlled bullpens with scouts getting velocities, spin rates while also watching mechanical setup, delivery, arm action and more.

As we finish the evaluations on each player in attendance for the PBR Scout Day, we look at the primary infielders that went through the workokut.  This group includes six Clipper players.  A highly athletic group, their defensive reps were impressive.  Each infielder also showed feel at the plate with one recording an exit velocity over 90 mph.
