Quick Hitters: Burlington & Mooresville ID Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

PBR of North Carolina hosted Open ID’s in Burlington, NC on October 20th and Mooresville NC on October 21st. The events featured players from the 2022-2026 grad classes. 

The Open ID’s began with catchers going through their defensive evaluations. PItchers followed by throwing a controlled bullpen with cameras rolling and Trackman collecting ball flight information. When the bullpens were complete, position players ran a laser timed 60, took live batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering ball flight data. The event concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive workout. 

Below we being to break down some of the numbers collected throughout the events with more player information to follow in the coming days.

Cole Hansen, RHP, Enloe HS, 2022
5-foot-10, 170 pounds.  Fastball peaked at 77 with good feel for his glove side.  Solid ride through the zone with 12:45 spin out of the hand.  Sweeping breaking ball spun up to 2100rpm.  Long arm swing to an over-the-top slot.  Solid direction.  Average arm speed.

Ian Bailey, RHP, Durham Jordan HS, 2024
Large frame with athleticism and strength present at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds.  Rythmic delivery with an hand pump and average kick, working level and on-line.  Long arm swing works to a high-3/4 slot.  Occasionally laid off at foot-strike the arm has solid arm speed and above average arm strength.  Fastball peaked at 87, spinning up to 2363rpm with sink metrics.  Better feel for the arm side.  Solid slider with late tilt and 11:45 spin out of the hand.  High ceiling potential as the body is still maturing.

Jorge Rodriguez, RHP, Western Guilford HS, 2025
Athletic and loose in a 5-foot-10, 159 pound frame.  Solid whip and arm speed.  Fastball peaked at 79 with an average spin rate of 1528rpm.  Played true out of the hand with 1:00 spin tilt at release.  Sweepy curveball showed feel for the zone with solid arm speed.

Caden Galuber, RHP, Catawba Ridge (SC), 2026
Athletic with good strength for his age, stands 5-foot-11, 150 pounds.  Potential high ceiling as he continues to develop.  Builds tempo in the delivery with a quick leg kick, working level and on-line.  Long arm swing is athletic to a high-3/4 slot.  Well above average arm speed for his age.  Fastball up to 81 with 2225rpm.  Breaking ball has 10/4 tilt at 67-70, spinning up to 2095rpm.

Garrett Brouwer, RHP, SouthLake Christian, 2022
Slender 6-foot, 150 pounder with room to add strength.  Arm has some athleticism and quickness to it, working with some effort as the elbow climbs above the shoulder line.  Solid direction.  Strike thrower.  Can spin the baseball and has confidence in both the slider and curveball.  Curveball ranged 70-73, spinning up to 2313rpm with sharp 11/5 action.  Fastball peaked at 81, but could be in line to take a quick jump soon.

Jackson Greene, RHP, Hough HS, 2023
Average frame with some athleticism present at 6-foot, 175 pounds.  Movement across the rubber through the delivery, settling on the 1B side and then working with solid direction.  Short strider.  Medium arm swing works to a high-3/4 slot.  Average to above arm speed.  Strike thrower with good feel for his breaking ball.  Fastball up to 81 with sink metrics.  Breaking ball at 67-68, spinning up to 2013rpm.

Justin Willis, RHP, Clover (SC), 2022
6-foot, 175 pounds.   Around the zone showing good feel for his change-up.  Works with some cross-fire to provide some deception, falling back toward 1B through his finish.  Long arm action, is clean, working to a high-3/4 slot.  Solid arm speed.  Fastball at 77-79 playing true with solid ride through the zone.  Breaking ball has some depth, especially when down at 63-66, spinning up to 2252rpm.
