2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.

ANALYSIS
Also joining Trammell in Scottsdale from the Reds are infielders Shed Long and Alfredo Rodriguez, catcher Mark Kolozsvary, and pitchers Tommy Bergjans, Ty Boyles, Alex Powers and Wyatt Strahan. Trammell clearly rates highest among the Reds players going, and Long has also had his moments as a prospect with some power.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
