Prep Baseball Colorado Staff

On Saturday, February 17th, the Prep Baseball Colorado staff hosted the Denver Preseason ID at the Marucci Clubhouse in Castle Rock, Colorado. This event featured ~60 prospects from the 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players in attendance. We continue our deep dive into the data collected at this event within this Positional Data Dive story.

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.

9 Jack Wesolowski CO Lutheran 2025 OF 22.8 mph
10 Colton Pamenter CO Chaparral 2026 3B 22.6 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.

9 Blake Anderson CO Eaglecrest 2026 C 70.6 mph
10 Kellen Conley CO Arvada West 2026 SS 70.5 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 (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Brigham Brown CO Valor Christian 2025 RHP 22.6 g
2 Lars Jergensen CO Ralston Valley 2027 RHP 21.0 g

9 Landon McWilliams CO Cherokee Trail 2025 2B 16.3 g
10 Colton Pamenter CO Chaparral 2026 3B 16.0 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.

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.
