Houston Fall ID & Unsigned Senior Showcase - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

On Saturday, November 13th, the PBR Texas staff hosted the Trosky Houston Fall ID & Unsigned Senior Showcase at The University of Houston.

FALL ID FULL TRACKMAN STATS

UNSIGNED SENIOR SHOWCASE FULL TRACKMAN STATS

Today, we’re continuing our post-event analysis by examining the data measured by our TrackMan units. The technology is able to capture information that’s difficult to capture by the naked eye, like pitch-by-pitch metrics and batted-ball data. We’ll explain more below:

MAX FASTBALL & PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Brayden Simmons TX Keller 2023 SS 86.5 mph
2 Logan Witt TX Stephen F Austin 2024 RHP 85.7 mph
3 Jaime Montemayor TX Sterling 2022 SS 83.5 mph
4 Charlie Jarrell TX Shadow Creek 2024 OF 83.1 mph
5 Landon LeStourgeon TX Boerne 2023 RHP 82.3 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Justen Gabaldon TX Waller 2022 LHP 2368 rpm
2 Landon LeStourgeon TX Boerne 2023 RHP 2254 rpm
3 Brayden Simmons TX Keller 2023 SS 2250 rpm
4 Billy Theroux TX St. Thomas 2024 3B 2179 rpm
5 Jaime Montemayor TX Sterling 2022 SS 2143 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 Heath Anderson TX Prosper 2024 RHP 15.9
2 David Morris TX Blanco 2022 OF -15.7
3 Dylan Cedotal LA West Feliciana 2024 SS 12.6
4 Billy Theroux TX St. Thomas 2024 3B 10.8
5 Jaime Montemayor TX Sterling 2022 SS 10.3

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 CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Justen Gabaldon TX Waller 2022 LHP 2450 rpm
2 Brayden Simmons TX Keller 2023 SS 2136 rpm
3 Carson Allen TX Canyon 2026 SS 2120 rpm
4 Dylan Cedotal LA West Feliciana 2024 SS 2090 rpm
5 Luis Santiago TX Byron Nelson 2023 RHP 2055 rpm

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Heath Anderson TX Prosper 2024 RHP 18.6
2 David Morris TX Blanco 2022 OF -17.4
3 Carson Allen TX Canyon 2026 SS 17.3
4 Billy Theroux TX St. Thomas 2024 3B 15.7
5 Dylan Cedotal LA West Feliciana 2024 SS 14.5

AVERAGE EXIT VELOCITY (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (avg)
1 Cooper Scott TX Lake Travis 2023 OF 95.4 mph

Exit Speed: Also according to TrackMan’s own website: “The speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.”
