Future Games Spotlight - RHP Montrell Christian


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

The 2022 PBR Future Games are less than a week away, and will be here in no time. With that being said, we would like to introduce you to this year's Team Georgia. We will roll out individual player spotlights with comments, video, stats, and more over the next few days.

One of the most physically imposing prospects in the state will suit for Team Georgia at the 2022 PBR Future Games. RHP/3B Montrell Christian (Forest Park, 2024) checks in at a broad and strong 6-foot-4, 225-pounds. Despite all his size and muscle, Christian is nimble on his feet and an athlete on the mound with quick, fluid actions. A power arm, Christian has been up to 90 mph this summer, complementing it with a potential swing and miss breaking ball that has depth and tunnels.

One of the top 2024s in the state, RHP/OF Montrell Christian Jr. (Forest Park) physically stands out amongst his peers, checking in at 6-foot-4, 219-pounds. Christian has all the makings of the next big power pitcher to come out of the state. On Sunday, he ran his fastball up to 84. He also dropped in a 12/6 breaking ball for strikes. As he continues to mature, look for the velocity to take big jumps and his offspeed to improve.

2024 Player Rankings

Weighs in at an intimidating 6-foot-4, 200-pounds. It remains to be seen whether Christian Jr will end up being an arm or a bat, but at this point he is able to do both at a high level. On the mound he can work his fastball up into the mid-80s and compliments it with a nice slider. At the plate, he has a powerful swing that plays well to the pull-side. With the natural strength throughout his frame, he is able to generate hard contact to all fields.
