PBR Louisiana Future Games: Game 1 Recap

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

The 2022 Future Games began yesterday, July 27, 2022, with a pro-style workout for all players in attendance.  Each prospect ran the 60 yard dash, took batting practice, and participated in defensive work.  Today, we took on the Carolinas (North Carolina | South Carolina) in Game 1 at 12:30 PM, and came away with a 4-1 win.  Below, we highlight a few of the standout performers from today's win.  Be sure to follow us on all of our social media platforms, as we take on Missouri tomorrow morning at 10 AM in Game 2.  


-2025 RHP/INF Marshall Louque (Lutcher HS):  The Lutcher HS product showed why he was the Class 3A Player of the Year this past spring. Louque came out the gate firing on all cylinders, predominately working off of an 88-90 mph FB and he was able to locate to both sides of the plate, as well as up and down.  His 72-75 mph "slurve" had really good shape and he was able to land for strikes, as well as swing and miss.  His 73-76 mph CH was a quality third offering that he rarely had to use.  The delivery is athletic and the arm is quick with more velocity on the way.  Consider Louque a BIG winner after Day 2 of the Future Games.


-2024 RHP Camden Sunstrom (University Lab HS):  Athletic and high waisted 6'1" 180 lbs.  The U High All-State performer went to the mound for the last 3 innings of Game 1 and was brilliant.  He worked his FB up to 86 mph, sitting mostly 83-85 mph, but he was able to get in zone swings and misses on the pitch, while locating to all quadrants.  His 71-75 mph breaking ball was the separator though, that had true "12-6" shape and spin rates up to near 2700 RPM's.  Sunstrom operates with a "low pulse" and seemed to not even break a sweat during his 3 innings of work, showing that he has the makeup to be a future starter at the next level.


-2024 INF Mikey Wisner (Lakeshore HS):  Wisner had a good workout day on Wednesday, especially on the infield, where he showed soft hands and a good arm across the diamond.  Today, he was able to put together a nice day offensively by recording two hits, both singles, with one in the four hole and the other back up the middle.  The Lakeshore HS product is more than the sum of his parts, plays the game the right way, and should make a program happy at the next level.


-2025 INF/OF Cade Wilkerson (St. Thomas More HS):  Every time we saw Wilkerson during the spring HS season, he competed at a high level and always seemed to produce.  Today was no different in Game 1 against the Carolinas.  In his first AB, he just missed a fastball away, but was still able to get enough of the pitch, to dump it into left field for a 2 RBI double.  His second AB, however, was his most impressive.  After working the count to 3-1, where he showed confident takes, Wilkerson blistered a fastball back up the middle for a single, and swiped second base a couple of pitches later.  The St. Thomas More product is definitely a guy to watch over the next couple of days.
