Pacific Northwest Preseason All-State - Positional Data Dive


Dylan Grenz
Associate Scout

On Tuesday, February 20th, Prep Baseball Washington staff hosted the Pacific Northwest Preseason All-State event at NW Sports Hub in Centralia, WA. This invite-only event featured top talent throughout Washington and Oregon in the 2024-2027 classes. The event included unrivaled access to data through our state-of-the-art technology partners, as well as in-depth scouting analysis from our Prep Baseball Washington staff.

Prep Baseball's Preseason All-State serves as an important tool for both PBR scouts and college recruiters, who identify lists of prospects to follow as they plan their spring coverage. Featuring several Division 1 commits and some of the top uncommitted talent in the region, the Preseason All-State event showcased high level amateur players throughout the day. These exceptional performances lend the opportunity to secure invitations to some of the summer's biggest invite-only events, including Top Prospect Games, Prep Baseball Future Games, and more.

Earlier this week, we published our Statistical Analysis, where we broke down the stat leaders from the more traditional categories, and our Pitching Data Dive, where we more closely examined the top pitching metrics measured. Today, we will take a further in-depth look at the positional player data, collected via Swift, Trackman, Blast Motion, and Vizual Edge. All listed stats are also recorded and made available on individual player profiles.

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
