Tristan is a big/strong built 3B that can hit. Offensively, he showed spray ability from a level path with some good bat speed. Being more aggressive early in counts will enable Tristan to offer at better pitches, and square more balls up. At third, he anticipates, has firm - but playable hands, and is not afraid to body balls up. When he jumped on the bump, he threw two pitches, staying around the zone with a fast tempo. Currently, Tristan projects well at the hot corner or potential in a corner OF spot at the next level, hitting somewhere in the middle of the lineup. Tristan plays the game hard, he's a good teammate, and very coachable.

Tristan is a 3B who has a thick and solid frame. He excels offensively through a tall setup and good balance. He displays good rhythm getting into a solid loaded position with good separation. Barrel gets through the zone as he hits line-drives and uses the whole field. Incorporating more of his lower 1/2 will help to increase his power. Defensively at the hot corner, Horton displays fluid footwork and moves well around the ground ball. He plays through the ball well toward his target and makes accurate throws across the diamond. Looser actions and fielding the ball further out in front will help to improve defensive abilities. As a junior, Tristan has a year to continue to improve in his game.
