Shooter's Standouts: Future Games 2026s
September 8, 2023
Each year the PBR Future Games is the marquee event of the summer. More than 500 uncommitted underclassmen in what is the ultimate one-stop-shop for college recruiters of which there were nearly 400 at this year’s event. Below, a look at 25 players in the 2026 class (plus one '27) that made an impact on Vice President of Scouting, Shooter Hunt’s, look while at Lakepoint.
Guy Lynam 3B / RHP / Gloucester Catholic , NJ / 2026
Those coaches who sat on Team New Jersey for four days as they posted a 3-0 record, likely left with reminders being set for August 1, 2024 to call Lynam. The 5-foot-11, 161-pound left-handed hitter was easily one of the top bats at the entire event, and his decision making and pitch tracking ability allowed him to get off eye-opening hacks in all counts with some controlled aggression. Stoic in the box with a polished approach, there was fluidity to the load along with some dangerous intent. Producing exit velocities up to 95 mph there were strong signs of continued power progressions, and the south Jersey native was perpetually on the barrel against some of the best arms at the event. Ultra-hitterish in the box, Lynam looks the part of a run-producing bat, and is likely to be one of the closest follows of next summer.

Trey Rangel RHP / SS / The Colony , TX / 2026
No arm showcased the electricity that Rangel brought to the pristine Lakepoint facility, and not even a rain delay could slow his dominant force. In fact, the added layer of humidity almost served to provide more snap to an astounding breaking ball which was audibly ripped off with nearly 3100 rpm with ferocity that had not been seen at the event since 2019 when future 3rd overall pick, RHP Jackson Jobe (Tigers 2021), was delivering hammers. A dynamic mover with an ultra-quick arm, the two-way athlete was up to 92.9 (and up to 94 a week later) after a full spring season of action. The swing-and-miss stuff, and especially the innate aptitude for spin, sky-rocketed the DFW-native into the upper echelon of the class with a ceiling that might ultimately be unmatched amongst arms.
