Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 30 | Run: 55 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Watch Trahan for one day, and you might walk away unimpressed. Watch him over the course of a season and you'll probably understand why coaching staffs wherever he plays love him. A true gamer taken in the third round of the 2015 Draft out of Louisiana-Lafayette, Trahan can do a lot of the little things well to help a team win.

One thing he didn't do in 2017 was hit. The shortstop does have excellent contact and on-base skills, keeping his walk rate high and his strikeout rate low. But he tried to do too much at the plate and get too big. Power is never going to be a part of his game, so he needs to get back to the line-drive approach that served him better previously in his Minor League career. Trahan is a very solid defender at shortstop and could stay there if needed, but after seeing time at second base during his stint in the Arizona Fall League, he's going to start moving all over the field more.

The Reds are confident that Trahan, a plus-effort, high-energy sparkplug, will play in the big leagues. It's looking likely that it will be as that scrappy utilityman winning teams often need.
