He has good range and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Tripp starts in a squared stance, he loads his hands back, and keeps the barrel on plane. He’s aggressive on the fastball and looks to use the middle part of the field. On the bump, Tripp gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and accelerates his lower half down hill.
