Drafted in the 13th round (380th overall) by the New York Mets in 2018 (signed for $125,000)
Tripp served as New Mexico's primary closer in 2018, saving eight games with an impressive 2.44 ERA this spring. At 6-foot-7, 200 pounds, he has the size organizations desire, but a rough delivery and inconsistent stuff may keep Tripp out of the top 10 rounds. He steps across the mound and throws uphill, although the delivery gives his pitches interesting angle and provides deception. His fastball, which ranges from 88-94 mph, has hard cut and good life as it increases in speed. The movement on his fastball is inconsistent, however. His 83-84 mph slider runs in on lefthanded batters, while his delivery makes for tough at-bats for righthanders.
