Chicagoland Summer ID: Pitching Data Dive


Kevin Cronin
Illinois & Wisconsin Data Coordinator, Area Scout

On June 5th, the Prep Baseball Illinois staff hosted the Chicagoland Summer ID at Triton JC in River Grove, Ill. Over 40 players participated in a pro-style workout, gathering unrivaled access to data through our state-of-the-art tech partners, as well as in-depth scouting analysis from our Prep Baseball Illinois staff.

Yesterday, we published our Statistical Analysis, where we broke down the stat leaders from the more traditional categories. Today, we will take a further in-depth look at the top pitchers with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

8 Xavier Martin IL Oak Park & River Forest High Sch 2027 SS 83.4 mph
9 Tyler Osmanski IL Lincoln-Way East High School 2027 SS 83.1 mph
10 Lucas Calderin IL Glenbard East High School 2026 OF 82.5 mph

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

1 Cameron Delahoussaye IL Waubonsie Valley High School 2027 RHP 2507 rpm

3 Beckett Weber IL Normal Community High School 2026 RHP 2236 rpm
4 Luke Wildes IL Benet Academy 2025 OF 2216 rpm
5 Lucas Calderin IL Glenbard East High School 2026 OF 2144 rpm
6 Nathan Matoush IL Hillsboro High School 2025 LHP 2102 rpm
7 Neyderson Campos IL YCCS-Albizu Campos Puerto Rican HS 2025 RHP 2096 rpm
8 Seamus O'Meara IL Nazareth Academy 2027 SS 2095 rpm
9 Miller Peters IL Oak Park & River Forest High Sch 2025 RHP 2033 rpm
10 Owen Cypress IL lyons township high school 2027 RHP 2018 rpm

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.

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Cameron Delahoussaye IL Waubonsie Valley High School 2027 RHP 20.4 in
2 Hunter Feldkamp IL Antioch 2026 2B 17.0 in
3 Nathan Matoush IL Hillsboro High School 2025 LHP 16.4 in
4 Max Judge IL Hinsdale Central 2027 SS 15.7 in
5 Beckett Weber IL Normal Community High School 2026 RHP 15.0 in
6 TJ Rodriguez IL Grayslake Central 2026 RHP 14.9 in
7 Matthew Steinberg IL St. Charles East 2025 1B 14.5 in
8 Lucas Calderin IL Glenbard East High School 2026 OF 13.8 in
9 Everett Perschall IL Glenbrook South 2025 RHP 13.4 in
10 Luke Stevenson IL Batavia 2025 LHP 13.1 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Nathan Matoush IL Hillsboro High School 2025 LHP -16.9
2 Lucas Calderin IL Glenbard East High School 2026 OF 12.9
3 Matthew Steinberg IL St. Charles East 2025 1B 10.9
4 Luke Stevenson IL Batavia 2025 LHP -10.8
5 Tyler Osmanski IL Lincoln-Way East High School 2027 SS 10.4

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.”
