2012 MLB Draft: Arizona Diamondbacks Select Catcher Stryker Trahan

Stryker Trahan, C-OF, Acadiana HS, Lafayette, LA: Listed at 6-1, 215, Trahan features a strong bat from the left side, particularly in the power department. His overall tools project well, with good speed and above-average arm strength, but he is raw as a defensive catcher and many scouts think he’ll wind up in right field. Trahan is committed to the University of Mississippi, but is signable for first round money. Few scouts doubt Trahan’s bat, and his stock would be higher if they were more certain of his defensive position. He has the athleticism and arm strength to catch, along with the emotional leadership makeup needed for the position, but he needs a lot of work improving his blocking and throwing. He has unusual speed for a catcher, which is another reason that scouts think he could wind up in the outfield. Area scouts have liked him for a long time due to his impressive makeup.
