2018 Moderate 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Wide base, quiet load, rolls on front toe for timing/weight transfer, minimal stride, some rigidity and length into the zone; can cheat and get to velocity, mild leverage, fringe-average bat speed, strong hands, some drag into the zone, can get slow, will struggle to reach outer-third and roll over; consistent barrel delivery, solid hand-eye, limited swing-and-miss despite length; moderate command of the zone, tracks well, very aggressive in-zone, on-base skills play down, wants to hit
Power 45 Average raw, maybe a tick above, moderate leverage, quiet lower half, doesn't max torque or fully engage hips in game at present; will drop the back shoulder and try to muscle it, can let pitches get deep and drive them oppo; game approach limits utility, present gap between projected and actualized
Baserunning/Speed 30 Has shown glimpses of 40 present (4.4, 4.5 full digs), some second gear well underway; frequent early check-ups, slow start-up off first, struggles to go first-to-third, body not conducive to hang onto present fringe utility
Glove 50 Defensive captain, commands the field, exhibits situational awareness, good flow to the game; bigger body with solid physicality behind plate; average agility, lateral range to both sides, average mobility to the ground, quick feet; solid receiving with firm glove
Arm 55 Above-average arm strength, can get quick & sloppy on pops, ball will tail & sail; smooth to his feet, fluid transfer, 1.85 pop on the low end, 1.94 average on three

Drafted in the 6th round (2014) out of Oral Roberts, signed to a marginally below-slot deal. Trevino exudes leadership and commands the field from behind the dish, where he shows the baseline skill set to become a solid-average backstop at the highest level. There's some lag time with the bat, and he'll never be an on-base asset , but the bat-to-ball skills and nascent game power are there for him to hold his own in the box as well. Average regular potential if the bat maxes out, with enough defensive value and leadership acumen to fill a second-division role if it doesn't.
