2025 Futures Prospect Games: Trackman Files


Kevin Cronin
Area Scout

On Wednesday, July 7, the PBR Illinois staff traveled to Ozinga Field in Crestwood, IL, to host the 2025 Top Prospect Games. This 2025 invite only event helped sort out the top prospects in the state at an earlier age as well as serving as a last chance identifier for the Junior Future Games at LakePoint in Cartersville, GA, July 29-Aug1.

Shortly after the event's conclusion our scouting staff published a Quick Hits piece, highlighting several standouts from the day. We previously rolled out a full analysis of the traditional statistics gathered from that event inside our statistical analysis.

Today, we’re continuing our post-event analysis by examining the data measured by our TrackMan units. The technology is able to capture information that’s difficult to capture by the naked eye, like pitch-by-pitch metrics and batted-ball data. We’ll explain more below:

MAX FASTBALL & PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 82.28 mph
2 Jack Wheeler IL Morris 2025 SS 81.06 mph
3 Liam Arsich IL Lincoln-Way Central 2025 OF 80.35 mph
4 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 80.03 mph
5 DaMaurion Butler IL Kenwood Academy 2025 SS 78.98 mph
6 Jack Bauer IL Lincoln-Way East 2025 LHP 78.74 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Jack Bauer IL Lincoln-Way East 2025 LHP 2177 rpm
2 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 2029 rpm
3 Caden Sladek IL Huntley 2025 RHP 2002 rpm
4 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 1957 rpm

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

Average Fastball Horizontal Movement

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Jack Wheeler IL Morris 2025 SS 14.4
2 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 13.1
3 DaMaurion Butler IL Kenwood Academy 2025 SS 12.3
4 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 12.0
5 Liam Arsich IL Lincoln-Way Central 2025 OF 11.8

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”

Average Slider Spin Rate

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Aidan Nohava IL Brother Rice 2025 1B 1394

Average Curveball Spin Rate

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)

3 Jack Wheeler IL Morris 2025 SS 1308 rpm
4 DaMaurion Butler IL Kenwood Academy 2025 SS 1223 rpm
5 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 1175 rpm
6 Karson Stiefer IL Prairie Ridge 2025 LHP 1134 rpm

Average Exit Velocity (Hitting)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Speed (avg)
1 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 84.77 mph
2 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 84.74 mph
3 Aidan Nohava IL Brother Rice 2025 1B 83.20 mph

5 Jimmy Downs IL Brother Rice 2025 3B 81.69 mph
6 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 80.12 mph

Exit Speed: Also according to TrackMan’s own website: “The speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.”
