Reno Knights: Statistical Analysis


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

The Reno Knights Scout Day in completed, we now take a look back at the standouts from yesterday's event. The Scout Day included a Pro-Style Workout where players ran a Laser Timed 60 Yard Dash, took a Batting Practice, Catcher Pop Times/Velocity, Outfield Evaluations/Velocity and Infield Evaluation/Velocity concluding with Pitches Bullpens. This was an exclusive event for players in the Reno Knights program to highlight and promote players in their program.

The Reno Knights Scout Day was lead by Oregon commit, Grayson Grinsell's electric performance with a handful of categories including the 60 Yards Dash where he posted a 6.85, followed it up with the day's top round of batting practice, earned not only an event best, but a Scout Day Season best 96 mph from the outfield and finished his day off by running it up to 87 mph on the mound. In the infield, 2022 shortstop, Mason Rowe, earned the top velocity at 78 mph on a frigid afternoon in Reno. Behind the plate, Uncommitted 2022, Kaden Shuck, posted the day's best Pop Time at 1.95 which was closely followed by fellow Uncommitted 2022, Dakota Shuff. This is a talented group with impressive depth throughout the underclass groups and below are the top performers from last weekend's Scout Day.
