Tripp is a hard working and talented 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. At SS, Tripp is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has a good first step to the ball. 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. He mixes his pitches and has a clean delivery. Tripp will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Tripp is an athletic SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2024. In the field, Tripp shows quick footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields out in front with soft hands. He makes a clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws, leading to solid carry through his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth getting back into his load and hits from a strong front stride. He takes a direct swing with decent bat speed which leads to loud contact and line drives. On the mound, Tripp keeps his eyes on target as he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a clean arm and stays inline towards the plate. Tripp shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 61mph. Breaking ball sits from 53-55mph with 9-3 break. Changeup sits from 55-57mph with cutting action. Overall abilities can improve with work on the following.
