Swing Analysis - Stryker Trahan
One prospect who has caught my eye for the 2012 draft is
His swing is reminiscent of the swing of Jose
I absolutely love how short Trahan is to the point of contact
(and he doesn't accomplish it with any
A to C Swing nonsense).
Here are some of the more relevant frames.
You could argue that Stryker Trahan has a bad case of bat
wrap. However, given that you see bat wrap in the swings of
good hitters like Jose Bautista, and many others, you have
to wonder if bat wrap is really as bad as people say.
Of course, Stryker Trahan could still fail in any number of
ways. For instance, I wonder whether his stride will allow him
to adjust to quality off-speed pitching. However, it's hard to
argue with his upper body and overall mechanics.
