Statistical Analysis: Mooresville Prospect ID


Brandon Hall
Executive Director of Scouting, PBR NC

PBR was at Moor Park in Mooresville, NC on Wednesday September 16th to run a Prospect ID.  The day consisted of 35 players from across North Carolina running through a full pro-style workout, with pitchers throwing controlled bullpens.

The workout began with a laser timed 60, followed by offensive and defensive evaluations.  Pitchers threw bullpens to conclude the night.  Throughout the day, PBR Scouts were on hand to collect statistics and video on each player in attendance.  TrackMan was used during the offensive evaluations and the pitchers' bullpens to collect ball flight information.

Below we begin our analysis of the evening with a look at some of the stats put up by the attending players.

Statistical Analysis

 

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash at the outset of the day.  The 60 was run on the grass surface.  The surface played true throughout the course of the 60 yards.  The median run time for the event came in at 7.63.

Rank Name State School Class Pos 60-yard
1 Seven Roach SC South Point 2021 OF 6.65
2 Nick Coggins NC Southlake Christian 2024 OF 6.88
3 Victor Wilburn NC Watauga 2021 OF 6.99
4 Hunter Atkins NC Randleman 2023 3B 7.11
5 Kyle Cassell NC Cox Mill 2021 RHP 7.16

 

EXIT VELOCITY (OFF A TEE)

Hitters worked through offensive testing including an exit velocity station.  The exit velocity station recorded a static exit velocity with hitters working off of a tee and a radar gun giving feedback.  TrackMan captured exit velocity during the live BP and that information will be shared in the coming days.  Below are the top exit velocities from the tee, during the workout.

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shorstop 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.

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.

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.

MAX FASTBALL

Pitchers threw in controlled bullpen.  Each arm threw 15-20 pitches, showcasing their complete arsenal.  Velocity and spin rate information was gathered off of the TrackMan and Stalker Pro SII.  An LED board was used to flash the information instantly to the pitchers and video camera, off the Stalker radar gun.  TrackMan analytics are the official analytics and the velocities below were captured by TrackMan.  Below are the top fastballs from the Scout Day.
