Las Vegas Top Prospect Games: Positional Data Dive


Cam Black-Araujo
Nevada Operations

On May 21st and 22nd, the Prep Baseball Nevada staff hosted it's first of two annual Top Prospect Games Las Vegas Top Prospect Games hosted on the campus of UNLV at Earl E. Wilson Baseball Stadium. This event was an Invite-Only event that featured some of the top 2025 - 2028 prospects in their class for a pro-style workout, as well as gameplay. We had roughly 95 players from the Southern Nevada area on-hand and the workout + game action allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look and analysis of the players in attendance.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Quick Hits (2025 Class), Quick Hits (2026 Class), Quick Hits (2027 Class), Statistical Analysis and Pitching Data Dive articles. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top position players and metrics with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
