LF,CF - SEA - NRI
Jeff Passan of ESPN reports the Padres are sending OF prospect Taylor Trammell to the Mariners as part of a seven-player trade.
Austin Nola and Austin Adams are two of the main pieces going back to the Padres, who have been quite active ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Trammell is a fantastic get for Seattle. The 22-year-old had an underwhelming year in Double-A in 2019, batting .234 with a .689 OPS. However, scouts remains bullish on his tools. There's a lot of upside here.
Taylor Trammell tripled and scored in Saturday's 10-5 loss to the Diamondbacks
Trammell entered as a defensive substitute in the sixth inning. He tripled and scored on Francisco Mejia's RBI flyout. So far through 22 at bats this spring, he sports a blistering 1.095 OPS.
Taylor Trammell hit an RBI single in the fourth inning of Thursday's game against the Angels.
The run was the only one the Padres would need in order to win, shutting out the Angels with a score of 1-0. Trammell was 2-for-3 on the day and now has four hits in 10 at-bats this spring. Trammell is also speedy, although he was caught stealing in this game too, and should have a chance to show off all of his tools in the majors at some point in 2020.
Taylor Trammell went 3-for-5 with an RBI as Double-A Amarillo beat Midland 6-2 in Game 3 of the Texas League semis.
Trammell began the year as one of the best prospects in baseball but struggled for most of the season, batting .234 without much power. He landed in San Diego back in July as part of the three-team Trevor Bauer trade. We expect Trammell to make his big league debut at some point in 2020.
Top prospect outfielder Taylor Trammell is headed from the Reds organization to the San Diego Padres in a blockbuster three-way deal that also saw Trevor Bauer traded to the Reds and Yasiel Puig, Franmil Reyes, and Logan Allen traded to the Cleveland Indians.
Trammel is one of baseball's top prospects, though he is having a down year in Double-A this season. Through 93 games this year, he is batting .236 with 47 runs scored, six home runs, 33 RBIs, and 17 stolen bases. He is highly unlikely to see time with the big league squad this season but is an attractive candidate in dynasty leagues, especially now that he has landed on a San Diego team that is loading up on young talent.
