Canyon Thunder Scout Day: Statistical Analysis


Cam Black-Araujo
PBR Arizona Operations Assistant

Our fall showcase schedule got underway on Tuesday with the Canyon Thunder Scout Day as we had 50 of their positional players in attendance for a pro style workout in front of our PBR Arizona staff. 

We got defensive metrics on each player, along with TrackMan data of their batting practice. Our staff got a look at a handful of players from the 2023 - 2026 classes and we begin to break it all down below with our first set of leaderboards. 

We take a look at the top players and metrics from several different defensive positions, along with the top 60-times.
