2020 Scout Day: B2 Bulls - Advanced Pitching Metrics With PitchLogic
- Recorded velocities listed are from the game play session, taken off of a stalker radar gun.
- Total Spin (rpm): The total amount of rotations per minute put on the baseball out of the hand.
- Spin Efficiency: Ratio of transverse to total spin... simple meaning is a higher efficiency yields more movement.

Fastball Spin Rates
The average fastball spin rate at the MLB level can range from 2050 - 2250 rpm. The average at the high school level will be lower, but can be hard to track as most pitchers that are getting spin rate readings, are typically more advanced. When looking at fastball spin rates, coaches and scouts are looking for pitchers that are outside the norm. High spin rate fastball, typically, tend to ride on hitter, creating swing and miss, and playing at the top of the strike zone. Low spin rate guys, typically, are creating some sink on their fastball, or the appearance that the fastball is diving.
The pure spin rate does not tell the whole story on any one pitch. Coaches and scouts are also evaluating spin efficiency and spin direction. They also want to see some consistency, pitch-to-pitch, on the release point.

Breaking Ball Spin Rates
Typically bigger spin can mean bigger break, but again on the breaking ball the spin efficiency can play a part. There are also studies that show the speed of the pitch can affect if the spin rate has a chance to take hold and create the break a pitcher is looking for. Below is a look at each pitcher that threw his breaking ball and what the analytics of each pitch looked like with the PitchLogic baseball.
