TrackMan Leaders: East Coast Dodgers Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

On Saturday January 14th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Next Level Training Center in Greenville, NC for a Scout Day with the East Coast Dodgers Organization. The scout day featured players from all over the country in the 2024-2028 grad classes. 

The day began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting advanced analytics. Once bullpens were complete, position players ran a laser timed 10 yd and 30 yd sprint. Position players then took BP with Trackman collecting ball flight data. The open atmosphere of Next Level allowed players, coaches and scouts to see ball flight off the bat. The night concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance.

Average Effective Velocity

Effective velocity is taking into account the velocity of each pitch, its release distance, the pitches time to the plate / hitting area, and the pitches movement.  With all of this information, Effective Velocity is allowing coaches and scouts to more accurately compare how a pitch is affecting a hitter.

Average Induced Vertical Movement

Induced vertical movement tracks how the ball rides through the zone, or sinks through the zone.  For the purpose of this board we are tracking which fastballs showed the most ride, typically leading to more swing and miss opportunities

Average Horizontal Movement

Horizontal movement is often referred to as run.  This measurement does not distinguish between early and late movement, just the overall amount the ball tracks to the arm side out of the hand.
