Mariners manager Scott Servais says OF prospect Taylor Trammell has impressed in the early portions of spring training.
“We’re going to see a lot of him in this camp,” Servais said. “We’ve got a lot of competition in the outfield. It’s a great opportunity for a lot of our young players, and he’s taken advantage of it so far.” Trammell was acquired last season and was once considered a top prospect, but he struggled in Double-A back in 2019. Now 23 years old, it wouldn't be a surprise if Trammell is finally breaking through.
Taylor Trammell homered in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s matchup against the Cubs.
Trammell is one the the Mariners' top prospects. He was traded from San Diego in August. It’s likely he will start the season in Triple-A, but if he plays well in the minors he could find his way on the major league roster.
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.
