Fastball Spin Rates

The average fastball spin rate at the MLB level can range from 2050-2250 rpm. The average at the high school level will be lower, but can be hard to track as most pitchers that are getting spin rate readings, are typically more advanced. When looking at fastball spin rates, coaches and scouts are looking for pitchers that are outside the norm. High spin rate fastball, typically, tend to ride on hitter, creating swing and miss, and playing at the top of the strike zone. Low spin rate guys, typically, are creating some sink on their fastball, or the appearance that the fastball is diving.

The pure spin rate does not tell the whole story on any one pitch. Coaches and scouts are also evaluating spin efficiency and spin direction. They also want to see some consistency, pitch-to-pitch, on the release point. To learn more about Trackman data and what it all means, click here.

Name Position School Class Total Spin
Cody Wikaryasz C/RHP Milan 2023 2100
Tyler McKinstry 3B/RHP Frankenmuth 2022 2050
Cooper Villereal 3B/RHP Lake Orion 2023 2050
Jacob Loveland 3B/RHP Fowlerville 2023 1950
Garrett Sharp SS/RHP Dexter 2024 1950

Breaking Ball Spin Rates

Typically bigger spin can mean bigger break, but again on the breaking ball the spin efficiency can play a part. There are also studies that show the speed of the pitch can affect if the spin rate has a chance to take hold and create the break a pitcher is looking for.
