Nashville Preseason ID: TrackMan Files

GALLATIN, TN - The Nashville Preseason ID was held on Sunday, January 7th at Liberty Creek HS in Gallatin, TN. This event was an open event that consisted of players from the 2024-2028 classes from Volunteer state. Players went through an extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60-yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to get numbers and metrics on TrackMan. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing at the event.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the top performers from the event.

MAX FASTBALL VELOCITY & AVERAGE SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Alexander Pinson TN Soddy Daisy 2025 SS 87.6 mph
2 Jackson Goddard TN Liberty Creek 2026 SS 85.3 mph
3 Corbin Craver TN Green Hill 2025 LHP 82.0 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Corbin Craver TN Green Hill 2025 LHP 2156 rpm
2 Jackson Goddard TN Liberty Creek 2026 SS 2064 rpm
3 Alexander Pinson TN Soddy Daisy 2025 SS 2038 rpm

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Andrew Day TN Rossview 2025 RHP 16.7
2 Jackson Goddard TN Liberty Creek 2026 SS 10.4
3 Alexander Pinson TN Soddy Daisy 2025 SS 9.6

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Corbin Craver TN Green Hill 2025 LHP 2725
2 Jackson Goddard TN Liberty Creek 2026 SS 2221
3 Leyton Coffman AL East Limestone 2025 SS 2134

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Jackson Goddard TN Liberty Creek 2026 SS 2274 rpm
2 Kason Woodson TN Springfield Tn 2027 3B 2226 rpm
3 Carter Baskin TN Beech 2026 SS 2017 rpm

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Andrew Day TN Rossview 2025 RHP 18.4
2 Kason Woodson TN Springfield Tn 2027 3B 15.2
3 Alexander Pinson TN Soddy Daisy 2025 SS 12.4

Horizontal Break: This metric measures the distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.

PEAK EXIT VELOCITY (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Ben Kauffman TN Cannon County 2025 1B 98.1 mph
2 Derek Chambliss TN Beech 2024 SS 96.4 mph
3 Brady Gutting TN Ravenwood 2025 1B 95.6 mph
4 Tyler Reynolds TN Green Hill High School 2028 3B 95.6 mph
5 CJ Potter TN Watertown 2026 C 94.0 mph

Exit Velocity: This metric measures the speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.

PEAK ESTIMATED BATTED DISTANCE (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Ben Kauffman TN Cannon County 2025 1B 374 ft
2 Derek Chambliss TN Beech 2024 SS 350 ft
3 CJ Potter TN Watertown 2026 C 345 ft
4 Brady Gutting TN Ravenwood 2025 1B 339 ft
5 Evan Driver TN Lebanon 2025 1B 326 ft

Distance: This metric measures the estimated “carry flat” distance, measured in feet, meaning the distance that the ball travels before it lands, or would have landed if it were not caught or obstructed.
