Drafted in the 7th round (211th overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013 (signed for $175,000)
Williams' father Eddie was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1983 draft and played in the major leagues for 10 years. Trey has been a high-profile prospect for years and was No. 99 in BA's predraft rankings last year out of Valencia (Calif.) High, but makeup questions drove him down to the Cardinals in the 11th round. He decided to attend JC of the Canyons, where he hit .324/.370/.514 with six home runs in 142 at-bats this spring. Williams' calling card is his plus raw power, and he has a second above-average tool in his arm strength--though his accuracy is below-average. His high leg lift and the length in his swing cause scouts to doubt his overall hitting ability, though he has done a better job using the whole field this year. He's a below-average defender at third because he lacks a quick first step and is a below-average runner, but he makes plays on balls to his left or in front of him. Scouts still have questions about Williams' desire, but his bat speed is intriguing enough that a club could take a chance on him inside the top 10 rounds.
