TrackMan Leaders: Team Beast Scout Day & Wilmington Preseason ID - Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

On Sunday February 5th PBR of North Carolina was on hand in Wilmington, NC for the Wilmington Preseason ID and a Scout Day with the Team Beast Organization. The day featured players from the 2023-2027 grad classes. 

The day began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers, players ran a laser timed 30 then infielders and outfielders went through a defensive workout. The day concluded with players taking batting practice with Trackman gathering advanced metrics. 

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

FASTBALL STATS


Peak Velocity

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Grant Pyrtle NC Laney 2023 RHP 86.4 mph
2 Kayleb Wray NC Eugene Ashley 2024 RHP 80.6 mph
3 Landon Neal NC Lakewood 2025 LHP 80.0 mph
4 Dylan Stacks NC North Brunswick 2026 3B 78.3 mph
5 Justin Flaherty NC Clevland 2024 LHP 76.9 mph


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.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Eff Velocity (avg)
1 Grant Pyrtle NC Laney 2023 RHP 84.2 mph
2 Kayleb Wray NC Eugene Ashley 2024 RHP 79.1 mph
3 Landon Neal NC Lakewood 2025 LHP 78.1 mph
4 Dylan Stacks NC North Brunswick 2026 3B 76.3 mph
5 Jonah Campbell NC North Brunswick 2026 OF 73.9 mph

4 Kayleb Wray NC Eugene Ashley 2024 RHP 2068 rpm
5 Jonah Campbell NC North Brunswick 2026 OF 2003 rpm


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

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Jaydence Gooding NC West Carteret 2026 1B 22.7 in
2 Justin Flaherty NC Clevland 2024 LHP 18.7 in

4 Luke Byers NC New Bern 2027 3B 16.7 in
5 Dylan Stacks NC North Brunswick 2026 3B 16.4 in


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.

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Jonah Campbell NC North Brunswick 2026 OF -14.7
2 Calvin Tourville NC Northwood 2026 SS -11.6
3 Zak Stear NC Cleveland 2024 SS -10.4
4 Landon Neal NC Lakewood 2025 LHP 9.3
5 Kayleb Wray NC Eugene Ashley 2024 RHP -8.9


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.  

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Score (max)
1 Grant Pyrtle NC Laney 2023 RHP 30
2 Justin Flaherty NC Clevland 2024 LHP 29
3 Dylan Stacks NC North Brunswick 2026 3B 28

Average Induced Vertical Movement

This is a measurement of how much the ball drops from its original position and trajectory.  It does not measure how late the movement happens.  This can be referred to as depth on a breaking ball.
