Taylor Trammell
21-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Cincinnati Reds AA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The peak of Trammell’s pro career to date was the 2018 Futures Game, where he went 2-for-2 with a home run and a triple en route to MVP honors. In 54 games since that high point (including Arizona Fall League play), he has two home runs and 15 steals (on 17 attempts), which illustrates his upside and the aspect of his game that needs some work. Despite his 70-grade speed, Trammell is not a great defender in center field, which may put more pressure on his bat. The Florida State League can suppress offense, but his .128 ISO as a 20-year-old is still discouraging. To date, he has struck out at a manageable clip while posting excellent walk rates for a player with his physical tools, but he has not yet been given a particularly challenging assignment. Double-A will be that test. If he can make adjustments and find success at that level, Trammell will solidify his status as one of the top outfield prospects in the minors. If not, his stock will take a hit. Read Past Outlooks

Trammell went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks Wednesday in Double-A Chattanooga's 3-2 win over Mississippi.
ANALYSIS
Trammell has driven in a run in all but three of his first 11 games at the Double-A level and is slashing an impressive .351/.500/.622. His improved plate discipline early on may be the most encouraging development, as he owns an 11:12 BB:K through 48 plate appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Prep position players with the "two-sport athlete" tag typically take a couple years to adjust to pro pitching, but Trammell has shown surprisingly advanced plate skills early in his career. As a 19-year-old, he finished in the top 10 in the Midwest League in wRC+ (131), AVG (.281), OBP (.368), and SLG (.450) while striking out at a manageable 21.5 percent clip. What makes him highly coveted from a fantasy perspective is that, in addition to being an advanced, well-rounded hitter with power and batting average upside, he boasts 70-grade speed. This allowed him to rank second in the league in triples (10) and steals (41). In this changing fantasy landscape, where seemingly everyone can hit for power, the players who can really hit while also contributing heavily in stolen bases are the rarest of the rare. Ronald Acuna, Victor Robles, and Royce Lewis make up the first tier of this breed of prospect, and Trammell heads up the second tier. He is a legitimate dynasty-league building block.
A two-sport star in high school, Trammell is an exceptional athlete with rare instincts for the game of baseball; he has an advanced eye and approach given his age and level of experience. He drew walks at a 9.1 percent clip in rookie ball after being drafted with the 35th overall pick by the Reds in 2016, leading to a .374 OBP. He flashed a bit of power to complement his outstanding speed -- he went 24-for-31 on the basepaths and stretched six triples. Trammell won't be put on the fast track like the Reds' top pick, Nick Senzel, but he should join a full-season club for the first time at some point in 2017, if not to begin the campaign. If he can improve his contact skills a bit without sacrificing power, Trammell should establish himself as a key piece in the Reds' rebuild and a valuable asset in long-term keeper leagues.
