MWL Player of the Week: OF Taylor Trammell – Reds

One of the top prospects in the Cincinnati Reds organization kicked off May with a bang and has his stat line steadily rising after the first week of the month. Dayton Dragons outfielder Taylor Trammell has been as consistent of a hitter as you could ask for in his four games this week as he went 7/15 at the plate. Trammell hit safely in each game, including multi-hit games in three of his four, and also had an RBI in each outing.

In his first game of the week on May 2nd against the Beloit Snappers, Trammell reached safely in four of his five plate appearances after hitting two singles, one of which added an insurance run in the top of the ninth as it scored Jose Siri, and drawing two walks. The 19 year old also raced home to score on a wild pitch in the Dragons three run sixth inning, en route to their 4-1 road victory.

The former 35th overall draft pick out of Powder Springs, Georgia stayed hot the following night as he got the scoring started with an RBI in the top of 1st to put Dayton out in front early. Despite taking a 9-2 loss, Trammell had his second multi-hit game in a row in another strong outing.

As the road trip continued, so did Trammell’s hit streak. He would add a single and an RBI double late in the game before eventually scoring the go ahead run in the top of the 10th to help secure the Dragons 6-4 win over Wisconsin on May 6.

In yesterday’s weekend finale, Trammell did extend his hit streak to six and his RBI streak to four with an RBI single in the top of the sixth. The run proved to be an important one as the Timber Rattlers would put up two in bottom of the sixth before Dayton was able to keep them off the board for the remainder of the game. Trammell also reached on a walk and showcased his speed tool with two stolen bases.

Trammell and the Dragons look to stay hot as they open up a six game homestand tonight at 7:00pm against the Cedar Rapids Kernels.
