Quick Hitters: East Coast Baseball Pitchers

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Wednesday October 7th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at First Flight High School on the Outer Banks of NC for a Scout Day with East Coast Baseball. The Scout Day featured players from the 2024-2028 grad classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive workout, followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers, the position players ran a laser timed 60 then took BP on the field with Trackman gathering ball flight information. The night concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

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

Quick Hitters - Pitchers


Isaac Miles, RHP, 2024

Strong build at 6-foot-2, 200-pounds. Continues to impress in front of PBR Scouts. Attacks the strike zone. Quick arm with a high ¾ slot. Fastball worked in the 84-85 mph. Breaking ball has top to bottom action at 73-75 mph. Mixed in a split with tumbling action. Shows feel for all 3 pitches. Has a competitive presence. 

Maddox Bass, RHP, 2025

6-foot, 170-pound frame. Worked only from the stretch. Filled up the bottom of the zone with his fastball at 83-84 mph. Changeup tunnels with his fastball and has fading action to his arm side at 78-79 mph. Flashed a breaking ball at 72-73 mph. Long arm action with an over the top release, velocity should increase as the body adds strength. 

Darius Oliver, RHP, 2025

5-foot-9, 155-pound frame. Fastball worked in the 78-80 mph range consistently getting it to the bottom of the strike zone. High ¾ slot with some quickness through release. Has feel for his breaking ball with 12/6 tilt at 62-64 mph. Flashed at changeup at 69-70 mph. Velocity should rise as he continues to get stronger. 

Dagan Felts, RHP, 2025

Long, lanky frame at 6-foot-4, 170-pounds. Worked to the bottom of the zone with all 3 pitches. Creates some deception working slightly across his body, uses a high ¾ slot, gets angle to his glove side. Fastball sat at 75-77 mph. Breaking ball has some length working to his glove side at 61-64 mph. Flashed at changeup at 64-69 mph. 

Trevor Sawyer, RHP, 2027

6-foot-2, 170-pounds with room to fill out in the coming year. Fastball worked at 74-76 mph. Breaking ball has depth at 60-61 mph. Mixed in a changeup at 67-69 mph. Works slightly across his body with a high ¾ slot. Arm has some quickness and should see his velocity climb as the body matures. 

Hayden Flowers, RHP, 2028

5-foot-5, 110-pound frame with plenty of room for maturation ahead. Threw a ton of strikes during his bullpen. Fastball worked in the 60-62 mph range. Curveball has 12/6 tilt at 52-53 mph. Showed at changeup at 57-58 mph. Long arm action with an over the top slot. Velocity and stuff should tick up as the body matures.
