My son is a 2019 RHP/1B 6-3 210 attended 2017 PG Sunshine SE and received a 7 rating and follow grade in our state. Topped, but was also consistent at 82 on mound and controlled zone well with all pitches. Ran a very slow 60 7.7. His trainer electronically times him at 7.2 to 7.3 routinely. He hit well and received a write up in scouts notes but showed no power in his 6 abs. 3 singles off decent to top level pitching. He wants to pitch in college and is looking at D2 D3 schools. His grades are decent 3.4 and 24 on ACT.
He sat 83-84 this summer topping at 85 on stalker during his travel season. None of which were PG events. So the 82 is still what shows up on his PG profile. Lots of camp invites significant juco interest but no real 4 year interest, yet.
My question for the forum--should he attend the PG uncommitted event in Ft. Meyers in January before his Junior season begins. I'm confident that he would throw 85-86, based on his summer times and his typical year to year velo increase of 3-4 mph. I know he would improve his 60 time from extremely slow to at least slow 7.3.
Granted this is hypothetical, but would a 3-5 mph jump in velo from 82 to 86 and increase in speed from 7.7 to 7.3 even make a difference to his PG score? And does timing matter? If these new numbers posted before his Jr season began vs after the season ends. Also should he attend the next PG event as a PO? I got to think the speed impacted his overall score some but not sure how that impacts PG score for two way player v PO
Our plan had been to attend the 2018 PG sunshine southeast but we can easily attend the uncommitted event if it makes more sense or can kick start some recruiting interest.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
