Brett Harrison
West Coast Supervisor

The PBR CA-NV-AZ-UT ProCase is an Invite Only event for the top draft prospect in California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah’s 2023, 2024 and 2025 Classes that will feature a Pro-Style Workout with Live Game Play to follow at the University of Southern California on Sunday, June 4, 2023. This event will serve as the final identifier for the inaugural 2023 PBR All-American Game where the top 2024 and 2025 prospects from around the country will go head to head in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at American Family Field. 

This event will feature the complete Prep Baseball Report Tech Package that includes a Vizual Edge assessment, Swift Performance Speed and Athletic Testing, TrackMan Pitching / Hitting Analysis and Blast Motion In-Swing Analysis. The technology used at the PBR CA-NV-AZ ProCase parallels the technology used by professional teams to monitor and evaluation performance within their own organizations and has become a streamlining feature in the evaluation of amateur athletes compared to players currently in their system.

We continue our Invite Accepted series for the 2023 PBR ProCase with Nevada’s #4 ranked 2025 and LSU commit, James Whitaker.

James Whitaker RHP / OF / Bishop Gorman , NV / 2025

The LSU commit has seen his game take off over the past year, with his commitment to national powerhouse, LSU, and his standout performance on the mound in the 2023 Nevada High School State Championship. At 6-foot-3, 200 pound, the sophomore has already started to fill out his frame in a similar manner to his brother, Tyler Whitaker - a 3rd Rd. pick by the Houston Astros, with room to still fill out. While flashing his changeup, he relied most on his fastball/curveball mix that he moved effectively in and out. The future Tiger seems to just be scratching the surface of what is to come with his athleticism and projected physical development expected to see his fastball velocity continue to climb and the polish and effectiveness of his secondary stuff parallel that development. Recently earning the nod in the PBR 2025 Class Top 200, do not be surprised if you see him make significant strides over the next year and his PBR National Ranking mirror that progression.
