Florida Burn Analytics/Data Training


The Florida Burn continues to maximize player development with the introduction of objective analysis. Analytical evaluation through data metrics has become a common language for scouts and coaches who are responsible for talent assessment. We have partnered with Diamond Diagnostics in an effort to provide our players another advantage in the development and recruiting process.

These analytical tools used to help major league hitters and pitchers master their craft have become available for all Florida Burn players through Diamond Kinetics and Rapsodo Hitting/Pitching technology.  The Burn staff is committed to becoming proficient in the new world of baseball data training.  Diamond Diagnostics analyst, Kevin Guthrie, is now accessible to any Florida Burn player looking to train through data analysis AS WELL AS fundamental, core coaching techniques; a combination rarely found at any level of baseball.  After a collegiate career in the Ivy league at Brown University, Kevin has spent the past three seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates player development department learning how to perfect the process of communicating important points of data information and bio-mechanical analysis to the players and staff.

All hitters and pitchers can schedule their own personal data evaluation or training sessions.  In order to learn more about Diamond Diagnostics and their training philosophies, or to schedule a session, please contact:
