Future Watch: Taylor Trammell Rookie Baseball Cards, Padres – Taylor Trammell was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds with the 35th overall pick in the 2016 MLB Amateur Draft. A great athlete, the 6-2, 215 pounder chose baseball and this outfielder has some tools.
He played his rookie ball for the Billings Mustangs. He had nine doubles, six triples, two home runs and 34 RBI with 24 steals and a .303 batting average.
In 2017, he played for the Dayton Dragons in A-Ball. In 491 at-bats, he hit 24 doubles, 10 triples, 13 homers with 77 RBI and 41 steals!
In 2018, he moved up to the Daytona Tortugas in A+ ball. In 397 at-bats, he had 19 doubles, four triples, eight homers, 41 RBI, a .277 batting average with 25 steals. Only 20 at the time, they sent him to play fall ball.
In 2019, he started with the Chattanooga Lookouts in Double-A. In 318 at-bats the prospect hit eight doubles, three triples, six homers, and 33 RBI. During that summer he was traded to the San Diego Padres in the Yasiel Puig deal as part of a three-team trade.
Collectors can find his cards in 2019 Bowman Chrome.
According to his MLB.com Prospect Profile:
A multi-sport athlete in high school who had the chance to play football at Georgia Tech, Trammell’s combination of natural ability, feel for the game and makeup have continued to lift him as he progresses through the system. His ability to get on base will make him a regular stolen base threat that could frustrate defenses. That speed gives Trammell the chance to be a future center fielder. He has a below-average arm, something he worked on during his stint in the Arizona Fall League. If he continues to get bigger and stronger and it slows him down, his bat should profile just fine in a corner outfield spot. ETA 2020
Post-trade he played for the Amarillo Sod Poodles in Double-A. In 118 at-bats, he had four doubles, a triple, four home runs, 10 RBI and three steals. A good way to close out the season. Watch for him in the coming years.
