The Future Games features over 400 of the top uncommitted 2021 and 2022 players from across the country at one place and is one of the most heavily scouted events of the year, with all 30 MLB clubs represented and well over 160 college coaches coming each year to follow four days of action.

Players take part in a workout day followed by three days of games. Teams are selected regionally by PBR's local scouting staffs, with Team Mid-Atlantic being made up of the top players from Maryland, Delaware, DC, and Virginia. We will unveil this year's team in the coming week in these profile spotlights, continue to follow us for all of our coverage in the coming weeks.

VA/DC Scout Blog

Gunn is a plus defender with arm strength to play the left side. Has a good understanding of positioning and angles to make up for not having elite foot speed. Arm accuracy can be an issue at times, but it seems like it frequents when he has extra time and arm gets a little longer. Throws well on the run and with slower developing plays, where it requires him to get rid of it quickly. At the plate the swing is a work in progress, but shows gap to gap power potential. Has an advanced approach at the plate and shows distinct adjustments in a two strike approach.




PreSeason All-State I

Upright stance starting slightly open with a small pickup to put down landing on line. Hands load back easy to separation and swing shows some strength and quickness getting to the zone. High finish with some explosion in the hips and uses the lower half well. Exit velocity was 86 mph and swing showed some gap to gap tendencies with power potential. Actions stand out defensively as Gunn works outside the ball well with active feet and gains ground on the ball with solid glove presentation. Soft hands to a clean centered exchange. Arm action is short and quick and throws from a low three quarter arm slot at 85 mph across the infield. Shows ability to make all necessary plays in the infield and throws from multiple angles with ease. Home-1st time was 4.31.




Top Prospect Games II

Gunn is 6-0 with a lanky athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, strides on line, short load back, violent hips rotate completely, he maintains some balance during his swing. Very short and quick to the ball, showed good approach using whole field, slightly uphill line drive swing, some strength at contact, quick bat with power potential, exit velocity was 84. At short, clean feet, rounds ball and fields with above average hands and a good wide base. Works through ball to a clean exchange. Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, position velocity was 85.
