DFW Fall ID: Quick Hits

TEXAS - October 21, the PBR Texas Staff hosted the DFW Fall ID at Weatherford College The day started off by the players running a 60, then throwing from their defensive positions, followed by each player a round of batting practice. Following BP, Pitchers threw bullpens, where TrackMan data was recorded. Today, we take a look at some of the stadnouts from the day


Matthew Hutchinson OF / 1B / Lake Highlands, TX / 2025

I had never seen Hutchinson before he showed up on Saturday, and he definitely made a loud 1st impression. The 6’2 RHH outfielder had probably the best round of BP at any Texas event this year. He showed elite bat speed, you pair that with his strength and you get a round that generated an average exit velocity of 101.1 mph.  Every ball he hit, he hit with intent and didn’t miss. He topped out at 105.9 mph and the farthest ball he hit measured in at 411 ft. He starts with a slightly open stance, and really loads up on the backside and and really rotates allowing his barrel to stay through the zone for a long time. In the field, Hutchinson showed off an avg. arm from the OF and he profiles as a power hitting corner outfielder. He will be on my short list of must watch players early in the spring. 

Dylon Myrow SS / 2B / Eaton, TX / 2024

Myrow really opened some eyes at Weatherford with his athleticism. He started his day by running an impressive 6.65 60, and then he followed it up by showing well in the outfield and infield during the defensive workout. He moves easy in the OF and can handle CF. He has the arm for it, topping out at 92. On the dirt, he moves well laterally and showed plenty of arm to stick on the left side of the infield.  At the plate, Myrow shows good bat speed with an approach geared for the big part of the field. He has more juice in the bat as he learns what pitches to ambush.  Myrow is a really good athlete who offers a lot of value by being able to do a lot of things on the field. 

Dylan Duran 3B / C / Aledo, TX / 2026

Duran is a sophomore catcher from Aledo and he showed well on both sides of the ball at Weatherford.  Duran is a strong kid, and it really showed during his BP. He had a loud round that resulted in many balls leaving the yard.  He had a max exit velocity of 94.8 and consistently made hard contact. Behind the plate, Duran showed well receiving and also had a best pop time of 2 flat. With some mechanical fixes, I think he can easily get that under 2.  Overall, a really good day for Duran.

Nicholas Truong C / OF / PROSPER, TX / 2025

Truong had a good day across the board. He is extremely athletic as evident by his 6.65 60. He is an easy mover and should be able to play centerfield long term. He showed a good arm topping out at 86 mph. At the plate, he starts with his hands high but gets them into a good hitting position at foot strike. His swing is geared for line drives and he stays in the big part of the field. He has a frame that could stack on some good weight, and a big off season could see him make another jump

Brayden Boyd OF / OF / Desoto , TX / 2025

 Boyd is a projectable 6’3 outfielder that showed a lot of tools at Weatherford JC.  He ran an impressive 6.89 60 and I think he has quicker in him. He showed an average arm that topped out at 85 mph, but with some tweaks in the motion that could go up pretty quickly. At the plate, Boyd has some rawness to his swing, but he does a good job of loading the wrist and delivers a direct path to the ball. With some added strength and better sequencing of the lower half and top half, Boyd has another jump at the plate. There is a lot to be excited about with Boyd.

Luke Tucker SS / 2B / Krum, TX / 2026

Tucker was impressive in his workout on Saturday. The Soph. from Krum ran a solid 7.06 60 to start his day and then showed well defensively. He has the arm to stay on the left side of the infield, and moves well laterally.  His foot speed will determine if he sticks at short or slides to 3rd, but the actions are there. At the plate, Tucker shows some power potential from the left side. He starts with a slightly open stance and shows some whip in the barrel. He had a max exit velo of 92.6 with more to come. Tucker has made some big jumps since we saw him last, excited to see where he is the  next time.

Bach Hartwig SS / OF / Keller, TX / 2025

Hartwig is a talented infielder from Keller who does everything on the field well. He is a good athlete, running a 7.05 60 yd dash. During the defensive workouts, he handled every ground ball with ease, and showed plenty of arm for the left side. He could play all over the infield and do it well. At the plate, Hartwig is a switch hitter who swung the bat from both sides. He generated consistent hard contact and showed the ability to drive the ball with authority to the gaps.  Hartwig continues to elevate his game each time we see him.

Bryce Mouse RHP / 1B / Elk City, OK / 2025

Mouse made his way down to Weatherford from Elk City, OK and was impressive in his bullpen. First thing that stands out is his physicality, as Mouse is listed at 6’6 230. He moves well down the mound for his size, and his fastball sat between 87-89 topping out at 90. He offers two breaking balls. A slider that he throws in the mid to upper 70’s and a curveball that is in the 71-72 range. He also threw a quality changeup that was in the lower 80’s with reduced spin. Mouse wraps the ball around his backside when he separates, if he cleans that up, everything should tick up and help him more freely down the mound.  Overall, a very impressive pen for Mouse. 

John Caldwell RHP / 3B / Frisco Centennial, TX / 2025

 The 6 '3 righty from Frisco Centennial HS opened some eyes on the mound with his bullpen. His fastball topped out at 88 with more to come.  The frame is super projectable with plenty of room to stack on good weight. He threw two different breaking balls, the slider was in the 79-82 range and the curveball was 74-75. They had two different shapes and showed some promise. He threw a firm changeup as well. He was able to kill the spin and get good movement on it, just needs to work on creating a little more velo separation from his fastball. Caldwell will be a fun one to follow, there could be some big jumps coming.


Cade Moore C / RHP / Carthage, TX / 2025

Moore was impressive all over the field on Saturday at Weatherford. The Jr. from Carthage was impressive on his catch and throw skills during the defensive workout. He ranged from a 2.0-2.11 on his pop times with a quick transfer and good footwork. At the plate, Moore showed above average bat speed that helped him produce a max exit velo of 99.5 mph. He showed the ability to drive the ball to all parts of the field with authority.  Moore also hopped on the mound, topping out at 83 mph with his fastball. He threw a low 90’s breaking ball and a changeup as well. He was really able to kill the spin on the changeup and showed good potential. Overall, a really good day for the East Texas native.
