My 2021 LHP son is a recent D3 commit. 6' 195, very strong, over the top delivery. I was hoping to get some basic feedback on his Trackman data from an event last summer (the only one in which he got Trackman data.). I understand some stuff about the data, but not everything or how to apply it.
Here are his basic numbers for his FB:
Max velo: 77.15; Max spin rate: 1938; Max IVB: 22; Max HM: -11.5; Extension: 4.36; Release Height: 5.67; Bauer Units: 26
My understanding is that average Bauer Units is 24, and so a pitcher with higher scores than that should work with a four-seam middle/up in the zone rather than with a 2-seam low. Is that correct, given his data? He seems to be just above that average, if that is the case.
Also not sure how to interpret his Induced Vertical Break (IVB) or his Horizontal Movement (HM).
Any feedback is appreciated on this or anything else about his numbers. He knows he has plenty of room for improvement and (like all college commits) is lucky that things worked out for him. I'm sure his college coaches will help, but I'd love for some guidance for this last hs season and the summer. Thanks.
