Arizona Roster Announced For PBR Future Games

Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

The PBR Future Games are our premier national event and Arizona will be participating for the first time in 2018. The event draws hundreds of college coaches and dozens of pro scouts to one location and is unmatched in terms of offering exposure to the top uncommitted rising sophomores and juniors in every PBR state. The event takes place on August 1-4 at Grand Park in Indiana. The full roster for Team Arizona is below. We could possibly have one more addition this week, but this is essentially the final roster.

Matthew Bachelier RHP / 1B / Nogales, AZ / 2020

The RHP was recently seen by PBR sitting 85-86 T88.



Drew Bond SS / RHP / Sunnyslope, AZ / 2020

Two-way prospect profiles best as middle infielder. Plays with big energy and enough arm to stick on left side.



Andrew Calloway LHP / 1B / Sabino, AZ / 2020

6-foot-4 LHP pounds the zone. Could become premium prospect if velo ticks up.



Joey Collier LHP / Paradise Honors, AZ / 2021

Freshman LHP sits 83-84 with arm speed and feel for spin.Will pitch on final day if not on Team USA.



Cayden Collins RHP / SS / Mountain Ridge , AZ / 2021

6-foot-2 freshman RHP looks like top 2021 pitching prospect in AZ. Up to 85 with no effort.



Daniel Davila SS / RHP / Flowing Wells, AZ / 2020

Two-way prospect likely profiles best on mound where he's been up to 88 mph with feel for spin.



Ryan Ellis SS / C / Mountain Ridge, AZ / 2020

Profiles best in MIF, but can play any spot on the field. Pretty LH swing. Caught for Mountain Ridge as a sophomore. 



Shane Erickson C / 3B / Ironwood Ridge, AZ / 2020

Has transitioned to catching full-time this summer. Big raw power with some arm strength.



Kenneth Jimenez C / 2B / Nogales, AZ / 2020

Was added to team after showing catching ability; clearly his best position at the next level. Bat speed with plenty of arm behind the plate.



Wes Kath 3B / SS / Desert Mountain, AZ / 2021

6-foot-2 LHH 3B shows smooth infield actions with arm strength and power that already shows in games. May end up being very physical.



Trevor Long 3B / RHP / Chaparral , AZ / 2020

Absolutely broke out at 2020 Games after strong spring. Legit two-way prospect. Upper 80's with future plus slider. Can really hit. 3B/RF profile.

Proven ability to make loud contact in game action. Profiles to 3B/1B/LF.

Joel Rubin OF / RHP / Saguaro, AZ / 2020

Has shown upper-80's velocity at times and flashed raw power on offense. RF profile.



Tyler Stone 1B / RHP / Chaparral, AZ / 2020

LHH 1B squares up the baseball with regularity. Not much swing/miss. May also pitch if fully healthy.



Augie Walters RHP / OF / Brophy College Prep, AZ / 2021

Elite projection. 6-foot-3 with extremely high waist and has run 7.0. Long, clean arm action. Some inconsistency, but has been up to 85 mph and could be best of bunch by time career is over.
