Chicagoland Summer ID: Positional 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:

ATHLETIC TESTING

1 Luke Wildes IL Benet Academy 2025 OF 6.75
2 Brock Harer IL Saint Viator 2025 SS 6.98
3 Matthew Steinberg IL St. Charles East 2025 1B 7.00
4 Neyderson Campos IL YCCS-Albizu Campos Puerto Rican HS 2025 RHP 7.04
5 James McGrath IL St Francis - Wheaton 2027 OF 7.05

9 Seamus O'Meara IL Nazareth Academy 2027 SS 7.15
10 Thomas Anderson IL Oswego East 2025 OF 7.17

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. We implemented three timing gates at the 10 and 30 yards, to capture athletes’ quickness, explosiveness and reaction time. From there, we will calculate an athlete’s top-end speed in miles per hour. 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.

The ability to develop force quickly is a requisite ability in most sports. The Reactive Strength Index (RSI) has been developed as a measure of explosive strength and is derived by evaluating jump height divided by ground contact time during the depth jump. Regarding Vertical Jumps and its application to baseball, there have been studies conducted that show a correlation between max jump height for an athlete and their ability to generate power and strength, especially on the mound.

5 Brock Harer IL Saint Viator 2025 SS 17.2 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.
