Statistical Analysis: TPA End of Fall Workout


Brandon Hall
Executive Director of Scouting, PBR NC

PBR was at Ting Park in Holly Springs, NC on Friday November 13th.  Players from the 2021 - 2024 age ranges were on hand to run through the workout for The Performance Academy.  PBR organized the night and helped to collect the numbers on each player in attendance.

Players began the night with offensive evaluations that included live BP, a laser timed 60 yard dash, and an exit velocity station.  Moving to the defensive portion, players worked out at their primary position with arm strength being evaluated by a radar gun.  Scouts were able to evaluate each player receiving and transitioning the ball as well.

Below we take a look at some of the leaders from each grad year from the event.  To see the full roster and statistics from the event CLICK HERE.

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.  Below are the top exit velocities from the tee.

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.

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.
