Future Games: Shooter's Top Prospects (2025)
August 11, 2022
A full collection of talented uncommitted underclassmen have utilized the PBR Future Games as a jumping off point in previous years, and this year’s event appears to be no different. A full cast of breakout stars and names to know across three classes proved that there is no better place to be, and that all roads lead to Lakepoint. Below, PBR”s Vice President of Scouting, Shooter Hunt, takes a look at 20 position players in the 2025 class that made an impact in his look, and are likely set to make even bigger jumps in coming years.

Even without a monster statistical showing, Carlson more than left his mark on the PBR Future Games. The uber-athletic and wiry 6-foot-1, 170-pound two-way player had the highest upside of any player at the event, and looked the part of a future impact prospect in the ‘25 class. Silky smooth on the infield with advanced glove-to-hand capabilities, and a future plus-arm (91 mph across in this look), his long term potential at a premium position should drive up his next level value. At the plate, the right-handed hitter was equally as smooth utilizing a simple, fluid setup with efficient movement patterns that allowed quick hands to whip the barrel through the zone with advanced plate coverage in driving the ball to all fields. Future pull side power potential seems likely as the wiry frame continues to develop, and there is a youthful exuberance and quiet confidence that pervades in each look. Only amplifying his future potential, Carlson also showcased himself as one of the top pitching prospects, utilizing a quick arm to pump fastballs up over 90 mph with the best present and future breaking ball, a 74-77 hammer with more than 3000 rpm that he ripped off in any count with killer intention late. Still very young looking with plenty more physical development left, Carlson stamped himself as a must-follow talent coming out of California in 2025.
