Tech Analyst, Area Scout

On Feb. 12, PBR Wisconsin hosted its latest event along the 2022 winter showcase circuit, the annual Fox Cities Preseason ID at Players Choice of the Fox Cities in Appleton, Wis. Nearly 50 players made it out to this event, providing us with updated looks and a new list of players to follow in Wisconsin in an area that continues to help us add myriad new names to follow this spring and summer.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event by class. We also rolled out a Statistical Analysis, bringing you a quick statistical analysis of those that participated in the event. We then dove deep into the data, looking at the pitch metrics and batted ball numbers from this event inside our TrackMan Files piece. With the help of our Blast Motion sensors, we analyzed the swing metrics in our Blast Motion Board.

Today, we’ll take a look at the top Vizual Edge scores from the event.

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.
