Statistical Breakdown Tri-State Arsenal Scout Day


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday August 21st PBR of North Carolina was at Clark Field on the campus of St. Andrews University for a Scout Day with the Tri State Arsenal. Players in attendance ranged from the 2022-2026 grad classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers position players ran a laser timed 60, took batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering advanced information. The day concluded with infielders and outfielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take our first look at some of the numbers produced throughout the workout. CLICK HERE for full roster and stats.

Statistical Breakdown

 

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start the day. The 60 was ran on a natural surface. It was a soft track from previous rains throughout the week.

Rank Name State School Class Pos 60-yard
1 Garrett Hayes NC Whitehouse 2024 OF 6.93
2 Logan Lowe NC C.E. Jordan 2024 SS 7.00
3 Robbie Smith NC Rolesville 2023 2B 7.02
4 Casey Culbreth NC Midway 2023 RHP 7.04
5 Dean Williams NC East Wake Academy 2023 OF 7.08

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.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Cooper Chasse NC Middle Creek 2022 OF 95.9 mph
2 Julian Arreola NC Western Alamance 2024 RHP 94.1 mph
3 Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 93.4 mph
4 Levi Baker NC Wake County Warriors 2023 1B 91.5 mph
5 Bailey Faircloth NC Langtree Charter Upper 2022 SS 89.4 mph

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 Garrett Hayes NC Whitehouse 2024 OF 343 ft
2 Bailey Faircloth NC Langtree Charter Upper 2022 SS 341 ft
3 Cooper Chasse NC Middle Creek 2022 OF 333 ft
4 Jaxson Cooper NC Wake Forest 2024 OF 320 ft
5 Robbie Smith NC Rolesville 2023 2B 319 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 Logan Lowe NC C.E. Jordan 2024 SS 79
2 Bailey Faircloth NC Langtree Charter Upper 2022 SS 78
3 Dominic Robinson NC Bandys 2025 C 76
^ Julian Arreola NC Western Alamance 2024 RHP 76
^ Garrett Hayes NC Whitehouse 2024 OF 76
4 Jake Pereira NC Willow Spring 2024 SS 75
5 Levi Baker NC Wake County Warriors 2023 1B 74

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 Alex Robinson NC Bandys 2024 OF 86
^ Casey Culbreth NC Midway 2023 RHP 86
2 Cooper Chasse NC Middle Creek 2022 OF 83
3 Dominic Robinson NC Bandys 2025 C 81
4 Charleston Sauls NC Home School 2024 C 80
^ Carter Stacey NC Person 2023 LHP 80
5 Dean Williams NC East Wake Academy 2023 OF 78

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.

1 Charleston Sauls NC Home School 2024 C 79
