02/23/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Trent is an athletic and talented 2022 prospect that was eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At the plate, Trent starts in a squared stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He has good feel for the barrel, hits off a firm front side, and makes hard contact. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside drive with his lower half, and back the ball up into the strike zone. He shows pull side pop but needs to have a more middle approach to be a multi-dimensional hitter. Trent will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Trent is a solid, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.35-2.50 with accuracy on his throws. Time will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone through an athletic setup. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to get his body down sooner and work to keep in front. At the plate, he shows a crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 4 years to further develop, Trent has potential with time and room to progress his game.
