Prep Baseball Report

TrackMan & Blast Leaderboard: Carolina Rockies Scout Day

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

Prep Baseball Report of NC was on hand on June 11th for a PBR Scout Day with the Carolina Rockies.  Rockies players went through a pro-style workout with the pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen.  Seventy-Four players from the organization took part in the day with 34 arms throwing controlled bullpens.

Position players were able to take multiple rounds of live BP while also working through testing in the cage areas.  Each player also worked out at their respective defensive position.  Today we jump into some of the more advanced analytics produced at the scout day by the offensive players.  Using Blast Motion sensors and TrackMan, PBR Scouts are able to track the player's pre-contact bat path as well as the ball flight off the bat. 

By The Numbers:

  • 74 players from the Carolina Rockies took part in the workout
  • 2021 - 2023 grad years were represented
  • 6 hitters turned in an exit velocity of 90mph or higher off the tee
  • 16 hitters were 85mph or higher in their exit velocity testing
  • 6 catchers produced POP Times of 2.10 or better
  • 10 players ran 7.30 or better in the laser timed 60
  • 92 was the top bolt on the mound, coming from an uncommitted 2021
  • 6 arms threw 85mph or higher in the bullpen sessions
