    View Draft Report
    Trevino has a long track record for hitting, which could get him drafted in the first five rounds despite an undefined position and a poor Cape Cod League showing last summer. Trevino had a storied high school career in Corpus Christi, hitting 25 home runs to tie the Texas state record and winning back-to-back state titles at John Paul II High. He has hit 31 homers in three college seasons, bouncing back in 2014 after an off year as a sophomore, when he was Oral Roberts' primary catcher. Trevino, who played for USA Baseball's college team after his freshman year, has moved back to third base this spring, also playing shortstop and catcher. Scouts aren't sure what the best position is for the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder, though they know it's not shortstop. He has the arm strength to catch and his bat would profile well there if he could handle the grind, but his offense really suffered when he played behind the plate full-time. He's a below-average runner with modest athleticism and sure hands. Trevino makes a lot of contact at the plate and could stand a bit more patience at the plate.
