By Phil Wade

Director, PBR Indiana

The Prep Baseball Report Midwest Future Games Powered By Under Armour is a one-of-a-kind event featuring the top 2016 prospects from across the PBR coverage area. The 4th annual Futures Games will take place at Grand Park in Westfield, IN from July 31-August 2 where hundreds of scouts from across the country will fill the stands to watch some of the top uncommitted 2016 prospects across our coverage area.

Last year Indiana's Class of 2015 Future Games Team has already seen 15 Division 1 commitments from that roster. Over the next couple of weeks we will spotlight players who have been selected to participate in this year's event 

Name: Dalton Laney
High School: Rockville
Graduating Class: 2016
Position: RHP/SS
Height: 6-4
Weight: 185

State Ranking: 19

A 6-foot-4, 185 pound righty is a mature, strong, athletic player. On the mound he throws an 83-86 mph fastball with a 72-74 mph slider for strikes. Breaking ball is tight and late breaking from a ¾ arm angle and a quick easy release. Offensively he hits from an open stance, using a short stride and a fast bat.  Swing path is level; gap to gap hitter. His arm from SS is short and quick, with accurate throws.  Laney shows plus hands with good footwork up the middle. Transfer is quick and clean.  Shows an overall great feel for the game and his position.
