Trosky Texas Scout Day - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

On Wedensday, June 8, we hosted the Trosky Texas Scout Day at the University of Houston The event featured over 100 prospects from the organization.

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 Cole Kaase TX Katy 2023 RHP 91.1 mph
2 Anthony Diaz TX Paetow 2023 LHP 86.9 mph
3 Julian Scott TX Benjamin Davis 2023 RHP 83.9 mph
4 Jaxon Coan TX Pearland 2024 LHP 82.5 mph
5 Van Brady TX Huntsville 2025 2B 81.5 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Adrian Rendon III TX The Kinkaid School 2024 RHP 2290 rpm
2 Jaxon Coan TX Pearland 2024 LHP 2283 rpm
3 Collin Sanders TX Huntsville 2023 SS 2190 rpm
4 Dean Crisler TX Santa Fe 2023 RHP 2173 rpm
5 Cole Kaase TX Katy 2023 RHP 2168 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 Anthony Diaz TX Paetow 2023 LHP -16.7
2 Ayden Mooring TX Barbers Hill 2025 1B 16.2
3 Diego Gonzalez TX Ross S. Sterling 2025 LHP -15.6
4 Nolan Hughes TX St. John's School 2024 LHP -14.9
5 Cristian Rubio TX Strake Jesuit 2025 LHP -14.5

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.”
