Coming out of high school in Texas, Triolo was Lake Travis’ star and two-time MVP who then handed the reigns to Brett Baty, one of the top prospects in the 2019 high school class. Triolo moved on to Houston, where he became a regular at third base and right field as a freshman. He’s been even better as a sophomore and junior, and as of late May he was hitting .327/.415/.505 with more walks (30) than strikeouts (29). With only average speed, he also picks his spots to run and had stolen 13 bases in 15 attempts as a junior. His best may be yet to come, as his hitting approach shows lots of opposite field doubles and solid strength. He has struggled to consistently pull the ball. If he can figure out how to develop his latent pull power, he could find average power to go with his average hit tool. That could be enough, as he’s a plus defender at third base with good footwork, solid lateral movement and good range. He can lose his focus sporadically on easy throws, but he has an above-average arm that is plenty for the position. Triolo could sneak into the back of the first day of the draft, but shouldn’t have to wait long on Day 2, at worst.
