Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID: Statistical Analysis


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday March 28th PBR of NC held its Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID along with a Future Games ID at Big League Camp in Marion, NC. The Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID featured players from the 2021-2022 grad classes. Big League Camp is a beautiful facility located next to Lake James that features an all turf baseball field with a spacious indoor facility. 

Pitchers and catchers got the day started with catchers going through their defensive workout followed by pitchers throwing their bullpens. Trackman was used during the bullpens to gather advanced analytics on each arm. After the bullpens position players ran a laser timed 60 followed by outfielders and infielders going through their defensive workout. BP was set to take place on the field but had to be moved indoors due to thunderstorms and heavy rain in the area. Trackman was used during BP to gather ball flight information. 

Throughout the workout, PBR scouts were taking metrics on players while evaluating their complete skill set.  Featured below are the Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID Statistical Leaders in several categories.

 

 Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID by the Numbers

  • 9 players went through the workout
  • 2 players ran a 7.08 or better on the lasers
  • 4 players had an exit velocity of 90 mph or higher
  • 309’ was the longest  ball hit
  • 3 players had positional velocities of 80 mph or better
  • 3 fastballs peaked at 85 mph or higher
  • 2384 rpm was the top fastball spin rate
  • 2357 rpm was the top curveball spin rate

Statistical Leaders

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start their day. The 60 was ran on an artificial surface. 

Rank Name State School Class Pos 60-yard
1 Fabian Walker NC Piedmont 2022 OF 6.87
2 Larson Scholtz NC Asheville 2022 RHP 7.08
3 John Miller NC North Carolina School of Math and Science 2022 OF 7.28
4 Ryan Fox NC South Caldwell 2022 RHP 7.79
5 Andrew Colaizzi PA Mercersburg Academy 2021 1B 8.16

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 Larson Scholtz NC Asheville 2022 RHP 100.0 mph
2 Seth Billings NC West Wilkes 2021 RHP 94.8 mph
3 Andrew Colaizzi PA Mercersburg Academy 2021 1B 93.0 mph
4 Fabian Walker NC Piedmont 2022 OF 90.2 mph
5 Ryan Fox NC South Caldwell 2022 RHP 85.6 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 Ryan Fox NC South Caldwell 2022 RHP 313 ft
2 Andrew Colaizzi PA Mercersburg Academy 2021 1B 309 ft
3 Fabian Walker NC Piedmont 2022 OF 302 ft
4 Larson Scholtz NC Asheville 2022 RHP 297 ft
5 Seth Billings NC West Wilkes 2021 RHP 288 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 Larson Scholtz NC Asheville 2022 RHP 88
2 John Miller NC North Carolina School of Math and Science 2022 OF 73
3 Andrew Colaizzi PA Mercersburg Academy 2021 1B 71

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 Larson Scholtz NC Asheville 2022 RHP 90
2 Fabian Walker NC Piedmont 2022 OF 81
3 Ryan Fox NC South Caldwell 2022 RHP 79
4 John Miller NC North Carolina School of Math and Science 2022 OF 76
5 Seth Billings NC West Wilkes 2021 RHP 72
