The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation, followed by infielders and outfielders going through their defensive evaluations. While position players were going through their defensive workouts pitchers were in the bullpens throwing a controlled pen with Trackman collecting ball fight analytics. When players completed their defensive evaluations they ran a laser timed 60. After the defensive workouts and bullpens were completed players took live BP on the field with Trackman collecting data on each hitter.

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more stories to follow in the days ahead.

HARD HIT PERCENTAGE

TrackMan is able to track and follow exit velocities of each hitter.  Based on the individual's top exit velocity, TrackMan is able to give us a percentage of hard hit balls.  This percentage is based off of each individual hitter's top exit velocity.

LAUNCH ANGLE PERCENTAGE

Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball.  While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.
