Trackman Files (Pitchers): Impact Scout Day


Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Gonzales, LA - The Impact Scout Day, our third Scout Day of the summer, was held on June 5, 2024, at St. Amant High School.  All players in attendance went through a pro-style workout that included running a laser-timed 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, batting practice using Trackman, defensive evalutaions, and more.  Pitchers finished off the event by throwing bullpens, where they were able to receive their numbers and metrics off of Trackman, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement and much more.

We continue our post-event coverage with a look at some of the top pitching metrics with the help of Trackman Baseball.  Please continue to check back over the coming days, as we'll release additional post-event coverage of the 2024 Impact Scout Day.

3 Johnny McCarty LA St. Michael 2026 OF 82.5 mph
4 Jacob Brignac LA Ascension Christian 2025 RHP 82.4 mph
5 Dylan McClure LA Dutchtown High School 2026 3B 82.1 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Dylan McClure LA Dutchtown High School 2026 3B 2251 rpm
2 Tyson Sheets LA St. Amant High School 2027 RHP 2241 rpm
3 Jacob Brignac LA Ascension Christian 2025 RHP 2214 rpm
4 Kason Johnson LA Dutchtown 2026 1B 2201 rpm
5 Maxwell Sanchez LA Dutchtown 2026 3B 2150 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 Jacob Brignac LA Ascension Christian 2025 RHP 15.3
2 Brody Mire LA St. Amant High School 2027 OF 14.7
3 Tyson Morin LA St. Amant High School 2028 OF -14.0
4 Easton Wimberley LA St. Amant High School 2027 2B 14.0
5 Danny Sears TOURNEYS Dutchtown 2025 RHP 13.8

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 Danny Sears TOURNEYS Dutchtown 2025 RHP 2410
2 Thomas Temple LA West Feliciana High School 2025 OF 2217
3 Kason Johnson LA Dutchtown 2026 1B 2206
4 Jackson Rachal LA West Feliciana High School 2028 SS 2118
5 Brody Berg LA Dutchtown 2028 OF 2067

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

 

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE
 

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Danny Sears TOURNEYS Dutchtown 2025 RHP 2371 rpm
2 Thomas Temple LA West Feliciana High School 2025 OF 2233 rpm
3 Cooper Boquet LA St. Amant High School 2028 3B 2220 rpm
4 Jacob Easley LA Prairieville High School 2027 OF 2215 rpm
5 Brody Berg LA Dutchtown 2028 OF 2121 rpm

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

 

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Kason Johnson LA Dutchtown 2026 1B 16.8
2 Tucker Miller LA St. Amant High School 2027 RHP 15.0
3 Tyson Morin LA St. Amant High School 2028 OF -14.5
4 Brody Mire LA St. Amant High School 2027 OF 14.4
5 Jacob Easley LA Prairieville High School 2027 OF 14.0

Horizontal Break: This metric measures the distance, 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.
