SoCal ProCase:

Body: 6-foot, 185-pounds. Stocky build with strength, particularly in the lower half. Could see a bit more growth height-wise. Wide shoulders, sturdy and strong legs. 

Delivery: Simple mechanics, small rocker step parallel to the rubber, back foot in good position on the rubber. High knee lift to gather over the rubber separating on time and sinking just a bit into the backside before driving down the mound. Lands inline with a stable front leg creating leverage and clear path for his arm. Short arm swing in the back - think back and through - through to a 3/4 slot before finishing with extension. 

FB: Average FB 86.6 mph, peak 88.5 mph. Release height varies a bit from his SL and CHG, something he can polish up to give the look of having all pitches come out of the same tunnel. High spin rate of 2066 rpm (avg 1938 rpm) on the FB, both of which are average for high school pitchers. Induced Vertical Break (15.9”) ranks average for high school pitchers meaning there’s average rise on the fastball. Horizontal Movement (12.2”) ranks in the top 25% for high school pitchers meaning Barrera’s FB flashes significant run. Averaged 6’10” of extension on the fastball which puts him in the Top 10% of high school pitchers per Trackman. 

CHG: Barrera only threw one at ProCase. Release speed of 75.2 mph. Spin rate of 1472 RPM. Release point was consistent with his fastball. Feel for the pitch as demonstrated in his warmups has improved. 

SL: Quality offering, 73-74 mph, with significant horizontal movement (avg -4.4”) with slightly above average Induced Vertical Movement (avg 4.2”) that ranks him in the top 25% of all high school pitchers. Gets very good extension - 6’7” - which puts him in the top 10% of all high school pitchers. 


The USC commit checks in at 6-feet, 190lbs. medium/large frame. Features a three-pitch mix with a fastball at 78-82, a curveball, and a developing change.  His delivery is deliberate and repeatable, however there are some mechanical things to clean up. Barrera flies open at times and lands on his heal causing his offerings to get away from him glove side.
