Reply to "Spin rate"

I've mentioned on here before about the "benefits" of Trackman but have said that there is still lots to learn about what the results tell us.  From what little I've read, I think the lower spin rates do tend to result in a "sinking" fastball, whereas higher spin can result in a "rising" fastball.  My 2017 had some readings a year or so ago topping out at around 2500, but he has throws from a lower slot so he gets a little extra movement as opposed to a "rising" fastball (based on the spin axis).  I don't remember seeing measurements for break but suspect these are available and can help correlate velocity, spin rate and spin axes.  As I understand it, your son throws exceptionally hard and I suspect a 95 mph fastball with an above average sink can certainly throw some folks for a loop.

Have any recruiters seen the data?  Has anyone with the necessary expertise commented on the combination of velocity and spin?
