On Saturday, October 7th, the PBR Idaho hosted it's second showcase of the weekend in Twin Falls with the Southern Idaho Open on the campus of the College of Southern Idaho at Skip Walker Field. This event featured 29 players from the Southern Idaho area in the 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look and evaluation of the players.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top pitchers with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

FASTBALL

MAX VELOCITY (MPH)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Diego Baker ID Timberline 2025 RHP 85.5 mph
2 Logan Mabey ID Minico 2024 RHP 83.7 mph
3 Easton Cannon ID Blackfoot 2025 SS 82.2 mph
4 Robert Morales ID Madison 2026 SS 81.4 mph
5 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 81.0 mph

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

SPIN RATE (AVG)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Logan Mabey ID Minico 2024 RHP 2360 rpm
2 Kyler Robinson ID Burley 2024 RHP 2234 rpm
^ Jake Redder ID Burley 2026 3B 2234 rpm
3 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 2076 rpm
4 Jaxson Kasel ID Twin Falls 2026 RHP 2027 rpm
5 Robert Morales ID Madison 2026 SS 1969 rpm

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Tegan Mortensen ID Madison 2025 OF 20.6 in
2 Christian Waitley ID Canyon Ridge 2026 SS 19.8 in
3 Kyler Robinson ID Burley 2024 RHP 16.4 in
^ Jake Redder ID Burley 2026 3B 16.4 in
4 Robert Morales ID Madison 2026 SS 15.8 in
5 Jacoby Roe ID Burley 2027 SS 15.5 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Cash Dahle ID Blackfoot 2026 LHP -14.0
2 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 12.7
3 Sawyer Tilley ID Jerome 2026 RHP 9.5
4 Robert Morales ID Madison 2026 SS 9.2
5 Diego Baker ID Timberline 2025 RHP 9.2

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”
