Josh Fields
Wisconsin Staff

Feb 25, the PBR Wisconsin staff hosted the Green Bay Preseason ID, at Impact Sports Academy in De Pere, WI. This event featured around 120 prospects, most of whom are Wisconsin natives, and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players in attendance.

Wednesday, we published our Quick Hits from the event. Thursday, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis. Today, we will take a further in-depth look at the top positional players with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

BLAST

With the help of our Blast Motion sensors, we're analyzing the swing metrics measured at this open showcase.

HAND SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Trevor Vande Hey WI Wrightstown 2025 OF 26.9 mph
2 Cameron St. John WI Altoona 2025 RHP 26.1 mph
3 Bryson Koehne WI Notre Dame De La Baie Academy 2024 1B 24.9 mph
4 Teagan Anderson MI St. Thomas Aquinas 2025 SS 24.4 mph
5 Teegan Karpinske WI Appleton North 2026 3B 24.0 mph
6 Cian Burke WI Green Bay Preble 2024 RHP 24.0 mph
7 Micah Byers WI Seymour 2026 C 23.9 mph
8 Mason Eckes MN Andover 2023 3B 23.3 mph

Hand Speed: The observed speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge.

BAT SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Cameron St. John WI Altoona 2025 RHP 80.5 mph
2 Bryson Koehne WI Notre Dame De La Baie Academy 2024 1B 77.8 mph
3 Trevor Vande Hey WI Wrightstown 2025 OF 77.0 mph
4 Brennen Grams WI Kimberly 2024 RHP 76.6 mph
5 Mason Eckes MN Andover 2023 3B 75.6 mph
6 Brady Coons WI Kimberly 2024 C 75.4 mph
7 Braylen Nystrom WI Stevens Point Area 2024 OF 75.0 mph
8 Micah Byers WI Seymour 2026 C 74.4 mph
9 Drew Van Oss WI West De Pere 2024 OF 74.3 mph
10 Levi Mills WI Homeschool 2025 3B 72.5 mph

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Cameron St. John WI Altoona 2025 RHP 28.3 g
2 Trevor Vande Hey WI Wrightstown 2025 OF 26.7 g
3 Cal Casper WI Bay Port 2024 C 25.2 g
4 Laliwa Delgado WI West De Pere High 2026 C 25.0 g
5 Micah Byers WI Seymour 2026 C 24.1 g
6 Aiden Hoffmann WI Preble 2024 2B 23.5 g
7 Cian Burke WI Green Bay Preble 2024 RHP 22.6 g
8 Braylen Nystrom WI Stevens Point Area 2024 OF 21.7 g
9 Jack Collins WI Notre Dame Academy 2025 OF 21.6 g
10 Jack Nikolay WI De Pere 2024 C 20.5 g

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.

VISUAL EDGE

A look at the top Vizual Edge scores from the event.

EDGE SCORE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Edge Score
1 Christopher Degroot WI Kaukauna 2024 1B 84.24
2 Noah Smits WI Notre Dame Academy 2024 RHP 81.77
3 Trevor Vande Hey WI Wrightstown 2025 OF 81.48
4 Nolan Kitchenmaster WI Green Bay Southwest 2024 2B 81.17
5 Colin Reddy WI Appleton North 2026 RHP 80.69
6 Tavian Ramos WI Neenah 2024 RHP 80.02
7 Gavin Spejcher WI Preble 2026 OF 79.16
8 Brennen Grams WI Kimberly 2024 RHP 79.06
9 Cal Casper WI Bay Port 2024 C 78.99
10 Drew Van Oss WI West De Pere 2024 OF 78.71

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
