Swing Analysis - Stryker Trahan

1/23/2012

One prospect who has caught my eye for the 2012 draft is Stryker Trahan.

His swing is reminiscent of the swing of Jose Bautista.

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).

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.
