PBR Colorado strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state. While other organizations take a national approach, our goal is to become the authoritative voice on the ground level of each state.

5-10, 170-pound athletic player with a strong arm and quick bat. Porter ran an event best 7.00 and we have had him faster. His athletic ability shines at the plate with a simple set up, quick load and explosive hands at contact. Good lower leg drive and a slight uphill path had several balls hit hard in the gaps. Exit velocity was 90 mph. In the field he glides to the ball, shows smooth actions when fielding and delivers from an over the top arm slot. Ball has carry and accuracy and played at 84 mph.


5-foot-11, 170-pound right hand hitting OF.  Porter was available on day two of the showcase and wasted no time jumping in to get noticed.  At the plate he collected three hits on the day and swiped 2 bases.  Exit velocity was 89 MPH.  In the field he moves well and attacks balls in the gap.  He has a strong accurate 83 MPH arm from right field.


5-foot-9, 170 pounds. Switch hitter, throws right. Slight crouch, and has unique timing mechanism from both sides where he loads down, pauses, then attacks ball with slight uphill swing, and simple. Worked for him and had a good round from both sides with solid line drive contact. Bat speed is there at 85 and 86 mph exit velo off the tee. Also showcased a strong arm in OF throwing 79 mph. Intriguing prospect with a good skill set. Also ran one of the better home to first times at 4.2.
