Logan Porter | Catcher

Triple-A Omaha Storm Chasers – Kansas City Royals

Playing behind eight-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove-winning catcher Salvador Perez, Porter’s path to the big leagues may require some positional versatility. With that in mind, Porter made his first start of the year at first base earlier this week.

The Phoenix, Arizona native tumbled over the first base dugout railing to make a highlight reel catch on Friday night. Porter is raking through 23 games, slashing .341/.449/.1.083. He has seven doubles, five home runs, and 14 RBI with 14 runs scored.

Porter’s MLB debut came in 2023 when the former Trailblazer hit .194 in 31 September at-bats. He became the first Utah Tech alum with an MLB home run when he went deep against the Astros in September 2023.

In two seasons at Utah Tech (2017-18), Porter slashed .347/.483/.581 in 104 games. He hit ten home runs and had a career-high 72 RBI as a freshman in 2017.
