2020 Top Prospect Games I - East - Advanced Hitting Metrics

Notes:

  • Recorded metrics are based off of Trackman and Blast technology.
  • Exit Velocity:  Exit Velo is the speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat after contact.

2020 Top Prospect Games I - East - Advanced Pitching Metrics

Notes:

  • Recorded velocities listed are from the game play session, taken from the Trackman device.

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
Drew Trevino RHP/1B Flushing 2022 2220
Jacob Anderson SS/RHP Notre Dame Prep 2021 2178
Gavin Moczydlowsky RHP/2B Huron 2023 2173
Jake Verellen SS/RHP Eisenhower 2022 2068
Jake Keaser RHP/1B Orchard Lake 2021 2057

Fastball Horizontal Break

Horizontal break is the distance, 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.

Name Position School Class Horizontal Break
Drew Trevino RHP/1B Flushing 2022 15.3
Gavin Moczydlowksy RHP/2B Huron 2023 14.6
Jacob Verellen SS/RHP Eisenhower 2022 14.5
Joseph Dorch OF/RHP Bloomfield Hills 2021 14.5
Jake Anderson SS/RHP Notre Dame Prep 2021 13.4

Fastball Vertical Break

Vertical break is the distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate height-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate height-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release, but affected by gravity.

Name Position School Class Vertical Break
Drew Trevino RHP/1B Flushing 2022 18.0
Jacob Anderon SS/RHP Notre Dame Prep 2021 17.1
Gavin Moczydlowsky RHP/2B Huron 2023 16.8
Jake Keaser RHP/1B Orchard Lake 2021 15.9
Jake Verellen SS/RHP Eisenhower 2022 15.1

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.
