LakePoint Open - Pitcher Analysis


By: PBR Georgia Staff

On June 1st, PBR Georgia hosted the annual LakePoint Open at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, Ga. Over 40 prospects participated in a pro-style workout, providing us with updated looks and a new list of prospects to follow.

In the days that followed the event, we produced post-event analysis that includes performance highlights inside of our Quick Hits story and a look at the traditional stats measured within our Statistical Analysis piece.

Today, we will continue our post-event process by rolling out the individual scouting reports from the day. We have already released the catchers, outfielders, and infielders. Today, we complete our positional look with the pitchers. We will conclude our coverage with a top prospect listing tomorrow.
