Top Prospect Games: DFW - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

On Tuesday, June 21, we hosted the Top Prospect Games: DFW at Texas Christian University. The event featured high level prospects from around the state.

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 Easton Tumis TX Friendswood 2023 RHP 92.3 mph
2 Berkeley Roddy TX Boswell 2024 RHP 91.4 mph
3 Caden Orr TX Carroll 2023 RHP 91.2 mph
4 Brennan Greer TX Ronald Reagan 2023 RHP 90.7 mph
5 Gavin Gomez TX San Marcos 2023 OF 89.7 mph
6 BARRETT JOHNSON TX Johnson 2023 3B 88.9 mph
7 Josh Glaser TX Flower Mound 2024 RHP 88.8 mph
8 Caleb Hoover TX Rockwall-Heath 2024 1B 87.7 mph
9 Kade Irons TX Ponder 2024 LHP 86.5 mph
10 Cole Loser TX Denton Guyer 2023 RHP 86.4 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 BARRETT JOHNSON TX Johnson 2023 3B 2514 rpm
2 Berkeley Roddy TX Boswell 2024 RHP 2449 rpm
3 Easton Tumis TX Friendswood 2023 RHP 2448 rpm
4 Caden Orr TX Carroll 2023 RHP 2382 rpm
5 Kade Irons TX Ponder 2024 LHP 2314 rpm
6 Gavin Gomez TX San Marcos 2023 OF 2298 rpm
7 Brennan Greer TX Ronald Reagan 2023 RHP 2292 rpm
8 Zachary Applegate TX Centennial 2024 LHP 2261 rpm
9 Cole Loser TX Denton Guyer 2023 RHP 2248 rpm
10 Caleb Hoover TX Rockwall-Heath 2024 1B 2225 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 Nick Wesloski TX McKinney Boyd 2025 OF 14.3
2 Jackson Voris TX Frisco 2026 OF 12.3
3 T.J. McCraw TX Wichita Falls 2024 RHP 10.9
4 Anderson Franklin TN Whitney 2025 SS 9.7
5 Kade Irons TX Ponder 2024 LHP -9.1
6 Caden Norman TX Farmersville 2024 LHP -9.1
7 Brennan Greer TX Ronald Reagan 2023 RHP 8.7

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.”
