By Nathan Rode and PBR Staff

On August 4-6, the 2016 Prep Baseball Report Future Games will take place at Grand Park in Westfield, IN. The event is made up of state and region teams with uncommitted 2018s and 2019s. More than 100 college programs had at least one coach attend and this year’s event will expand to 16 teams. To get ready for this year, the next few Hotlists will highlight some of the top prospects coming to the Future Games. We’ll look at the top pitchers and position players, as well as the top 2019s.

To kick it off, here are the top pitchers who will represent their state next month…

Max Alba, RHP, Franklin HS, WI
Alba has an athletic frame at 6-foot-5, 185 pounds. He’s a raw athlete with a high ceiling on the mound. He works from an over-the-top slot with a short, quick and loose arm action. Employing a full, overhead drop-and-drive delivery, he has an athletic finish and the ability to run his fastball up to 89 mph. His curveball plays with 11/5 shape and sharp action at 71-75. He maintains his arm speed on his changeup, which shows fading action at 77-81.
