Underclass Preseason All-State: Positional Data Dive


Cam Black-Araujo
Arizona Operations

This past Saturday and Sunday, the PBR Arizona staff hosted it's marquee event of the preseason with the Underclass Preseason All-State at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona. This event featured roughly 85 prospects from the 2026 and 2027 classes and featured a large crop of Arizona's top underclass prospects for a pro-style workout on Saturday, followed by live-game action on Sunday.

The event allowed our staff to collect updated data on all athletes, as well as give us an up-close look at the players ahead of the high school season and our updated rankings that will be rolling out.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis, Pitching Data Dive and Quick Hits. Now, we conclude our post-event coverage with a further in-depth look at the top positional players with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.

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.

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.
