PBR Georgia hosted its second annual Fall Upperclass Games on Sunday, November 8th at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, Ga. The event brought together just over 100 uncommitted prospects from the 2021 and 2022 class. Prospects participated in a pro-style workout before splitting up into teams for simulated gameplay. Today, we will conclude the player analysis with a look at the right-handed pitchers.

This was without a doubt the most talented position group at the entire event, It was so talented that we had to expand our top prospect list to 15 players. Each one of these prospects had standout days on the bump and can help many programs at the next level.

Keep reading to view the top-15 right-handed pitchers at the event, followed by reports on the remaining right-handed pitchers, listed alphabetically.
