TrackMan Leaders: Fall Triangle ID & DPC Scout Day - Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

   

On Tuesday October 25th PBR of North Carolina was at DPC Baseball Academy in Clayton, NC hosting the Fall ID - Triangle and the DPC Academy Scout Day. The workout featured players in the 2024-2026 grad classes.

The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight information. After the pitchers the position players ran a laser timed 60 then took live batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering information on each swing. The workout concluded with outfielders and infielders going through their defensive evaluation. 

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

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.

Peak Spin Score

The Spin Score is a measurement linking velocity and spin.  It is calculated by dividing the spin rate by the velocity of each pitch.
