Statistical Analysis: CVCC Scout Day


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Wednesday October 27th PBR of North Carolina was on hand in Hickory, NC for a Scout Day with Catawba Valley Community College. 

The day began with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering ball flight analytics. After the bullpens were complete, catchers went through a defensive evaluation followed by a laser timed 60, batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. The day concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take a look at some of the numbers collected during the workout. Be on the lookout for more notes and information in the coming days.

TRACKMAN MAX EXIT VELOCITY (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the exit velocity.  Below are the top Exit Velocities produced during live BP.

TRACKMAN MAX DISTANCE (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the distance each hit travels, if in fair territory.  Below are the top max distances produced during live BP.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Masashi Takegama NC Catawba Valley 2019 OF 402 ft
2 Javier Rojas NC Catawba Valley 2019 OF 385 ft

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shortstop throwing across the infield, or from 1B throwing to 2B and 3B in the pro-style workout.  Coaches are working to evaluate rhythm, footwork, hands, exchanges, arm action, accuracy, and carry.  To measure arm strength PBR Scouts utilize a radar gun.  Below are the top posted positional velocities from the day.

Rank Name State School Class Pos INF Velo
1 Jackie Jimenez NC Catawba Valley 2019 C 90
2 Cole Cunningham NC Heritage 2019 3B 88
3 Samuel Walker NC Northwest Cabarrus 2019 SS 84
4 Jose Vargas NC Hickory Ridge 2019 SS 83
5 Juan Moreno NC Catawba Valley 2019 SS 80
^ Josh Allen NC North Lincoln 2019 RHP 80
^ Kyle Raynor SC Indian Land 2020 2B 80
^ Ilich Purcell NC Catawba Valley 2019 SS 80

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – OUTFIELDERS

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the plate.  Throws were measured by a radar gun to gauge arm strength.  Scouts are also working to see exchange, arm path, carry, and accuracy.

Rank Name State School Class Pos OF Velo
1 Javier Rojas NC Catawba Valley 2019 OF 93
2 Sean Seale NC Home School 2020 OF 90
3 Zack Summerville NC North Gaston 2019 RHP 88
4 Max Hundley NC Northwood 2018 RHP 87
5 Troy Clary NC Davie County 2020 RHP 85

CATCHER POP TIMES & POSITIONAL VELOCITY

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.
