Reed Trimble
Name: William Trimble
Born: Jun 6, 2000 in Tupelo,
College: Southern Mississippi
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: S / Throws: R
Drafted in the supplemental 2nd round (65th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2021 (signed for $800,000)
Trimble came into 2021 as a second-year freshman who had played just 11 games in the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season. He turns 21 before the draft, so he is draft-eligible and he forced his way into solid draft consideration by authoring an excellent second freshman season. Trimble hit .345/.414/.618 with 17 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 14 tries, doing a little bit of everything. At the NCAA regional, he went 14-for-25 with two doubles, three home runs and a stolen base. It’s hard to find a lot of clear weaknesses in Trimble’s game. He’s a switch-hitter who swings the bat well from both sides. He has above-average bat speed and he showed the ability to catch up to premium velocity. In pro ball, his power may end up being more gap power, but he did show the ability to drive the ball to the opposite field. His plus-plus speed is an asset at the plate and even more so in center field, where he runs down balls that seem destined to find a gap. Trimble could be a little more selective at the plate, but experience may help that—he’s had only 300 collegiate plate appearances. He also played a little second base for Southern Miss, but he fits best as a rangy center fielder. Trimble has a short track record, but his well-rounded skill set makes him a name to watch.
