Trystin is a tall, athletic two-way prospect who shows the skills and baseball IQ to be an asset at both positions he plays. He shows natural hitting instincts at the dish with feel for the barrel and the ability to put the ball in play to all fields. He shows a tall, square setup in the box with an aggressive approach, looking to ambush the pitch he's looking for, and a good idea of the strike zone. His hands are loose and his lower half generates bat speed and pop as he shows consistent contact skills and pop to the pull side. In the outfield, he works aggressively to the ball and shows a wide catch radius with his long frame and arms. He stays low to the ground to field, working through the ball to move towards his target and make accurate throws. Working on reads off the bat will result in quicker jumps and extended range in the future. On the bump, this southpaw shows off clean arm action to get whip on release and add some tailing action to his upper 70's fastball. He generates good power to the plate through his hips and works directionally to the hitter to show good control. Trystin is an intriguing, projectable prospect who we are excited to continue following as he progresses.
