Pro Case Quick Hitters: Pitchers

Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

The South Carolina Pro Case took place on Sunday, January 30th at the P27 Performance Center in Lexington, South Carolina.  With the cold early morning temperatures and with the high school season starting the next day, we made the decision to hold this event indoors for the safety of the players attending the event.  

A premier event for premier talent in South Carolina, we have seen a lot of very talented prospects workout at this event prior to their spring season.  Coming off each individual player's preseason workout, this event tends to see players blow up their numbers, giving coaches and scouts a reason to take notice as they prep their spring schedules for evaluation.  Will be fun to watch these players continue to develop as the spring goes on with many of these young men draft stock trending upwards.  

The event began with extensive rounds of BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis,followed by pitcher bullpens with each pitch tracked by Trackman, along with Pitch AI.  Below we will look at some quick hitters from the pitchers for the event.
