Upstate Mavs Statistical Analysis


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

On Saturday May 22nd, PBR converged onto Big League Camp in Marion, NC where the Upstate Mavs were hosting an organizational weekend.  Part of their organizational weekend was a PBR Scout Day, allowing their players to go through a full pro-style workout, posting numbers and receiving feedback.  Players attending the scout day will receive their stats, a video, advanced analytics from TrackMan, and an evaluation, all hosted on their PBR Profile page.

The day started with pitchers throwing controlled bullpens.  TrackMan was able to track ball flight and give in-depth stats on each arm that threw.  Following the pitchers, the position players ran a laser timed 60 and then went through offensive evaluations, again with TrackMan providing feedback.  The position players finished the day with their defensive workout. All players stats below were collected during the pro-style workout.  Each player will have his workout on video, posted to his profile page in the coming days.

Upstate Mavs Scout Day By the Numbers:

  • 72 players in the Mavs system took part in the workout
  • 6 players ran under 7.00 on the laser
  • 13 players ran under 7.20
  • 7.50 was the median 60 time at the workout
  • 7 arms showed carry across the diamond or from the OF above 80 mph
  • 4 catchers posted pop times of 2.15 or better
  • 101.66 was the top recorded exit velocity during live BP
  • 16 hitters posted an exit velocity above 90 mph
  • 2 hitters posted an exit velocity of 100 mph or greater
  • 86 mph was the median exit velocity of the 60 hitters
  • 373' was the furthest hit ball during BP
  • 6 hitters launched balls further than 350'
  • 87 mph was the top fastball recorded
  • 8 pitchers worked at 82 or higher
  • 2359 rpm was the top recorded spin rate on a fastball

TrackMan Max Exit Velocity (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat for every ball hit in fair territory.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the exit velocity at the bat's impact with the ball.  Below are the top exit velocities recorded during BP.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Mac Ketchin SC Wando 2022 OF 101.7 mph

15 Cal Robertson SC Laurens Academy 2022 OF 92.6 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 William Campagna SC Wando 2022 OF 373 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 Brady Wharton SC JL Mann 2022 SS 81
2 Joshua Jackson SC South Pointe 2023 2B 80

5 Garrison Cartee SC Wren 2022 2B 76
^ Ryan Bruno SC Ashley Ridge 2024 3B 76

 

Positional Velocity - Outfielders

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the 3B.  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 Mac Ketchin SC Wando 2022 OF 87
2 Caleb McCants SC Blythewood 2022 OF 86
3 Landon Gomes SC Hanahan 2024 OF 82
4 Colby Ridgell SC AC Flora 2024 OF 81
5 Cal Robertson SC Laurens Academy 2022 OF 80

 

Catcher Pop Times & Positional Velocity

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Pop Time
1 Gavin Underwood GA Jenkins County 2023 C 2.00-2.22
2 Logan Busenlehner SC Cardinal Newman 2023 C 2.01-2.19
