Rawlings Tigers Scout Day: TrackMan Files


PBR Utah Staff

On July 11th the PBR Utah staff hosted the Rawlings Tigers Scout Day event at Mountain Ridge High School, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2022-2026 classes. Inside today’s TrackMan Files, we’re highlighting the top performers from this event from the data and metrics from our TrackMan unit.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event. We also rolled out a Statistical Leaderboard pointing out the top recorded stats by category.

Now we'll continue to roll out the data we gathered from this event, starting with the analytics we have at our disposal from our TrackMan unit. Below we'll look at which players had noteworthy batted ball and pitch metric data.

 

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Blake Evans UT Mountain Ridge 2022 3B 82.3 mph
2 Jackson Kinnersley UT Olympus 2023 LHP 80.9 mph
3 Delton Cramer UT Bingham 2025 RHP 78.1 mph
4 Braxton Deal UT Layton 2024 LHP 77.2 mph
5 Brock Canata UT Herriman 2023 RHP 75.9 mph

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

PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Blake Evans UT Mountain Ridge 2022 3B 2326 rpm
2 Delton Cramer UT Bingham 2025 RHP 2197 rpm
3 Brock Canata UT Herriman 2023 RHP 2155 rpm
4 Braxton Hermansen UT Herriman 2023 OF 2112 rpm
5 Jackson Kinnersley UT Olympus 2023 LHP 2035 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.
