He has loose levers and strength in his swing with baseball exploding off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. In the IF, feet are aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through while presenting glove well out front. Hands / feet work well together and he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on throws. Trent has the makings of a special type player with tools that will play at the next level.

12/27/2014 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2
Trent continues to have the look of a projectable corner infielder. Offensively, he hit for pop and began to trust his pace. Staying loose throughout the swing and eliminating over-swinging frequency will add to his prowess. At 1B, he was a large target for infielders and had plus athleticism to make plays. He could become more consistent to get into a low fielding position and needs to work through arm maintenance drills to stay healthy.
10/01/2014 - Arizona Freshman/Sophomore Fall Classic
Trent is a very well built 2017 that can flat out swing it. He gets himself into a strong hitting position and delivers the barrel down to contact generating plus bat speed. He is accurate with the barrel as proven by his 4-6 performance with a BB & HBP at the AZ Sophomore Fall Classic. Mechanically, he has quiet actions and is able to repeat his swing. The ball jumps off his bat on contact and he drives to both gaps. Remaining disciplined and trusting his productive pace (not trying to swing to hard) - will elevate Trent's overall hit ability. Defensively, he has good actions around 1B, and picks the ball in the dirt. He takes a quick first step to work around and field balls and flashes soft hands. A lower fielding position will increase his fielding percentage by forcing his hands further in front for sureness. All in all - Trent is a very exciting player that we look forward to tracking throughout high school.
