MLB Draft 2012: Stryker Trahan A First Round Possibility For Braves

The Atlanta Braves will have the 21st pick in the 2012 MLB Draft that gets underway on June 4. Many are projecting the Braves to take a pitcher with their first round selection but Matt Grabusky of MLB Draft Guide projects Stryker Trahan of Acadiana High School in Lafayette Lousiana to Atlanta.

Baseball Prospect Nation calls Trahan the best catching prospect in the draft and seems like it will be a long shot for him to be available when the Braves pick.

Really intriguing catching prospect with Projectable defensive tools and legit left-handed power. Good feel for the game and a hard worker. Continues to improve behind the plate. Arm is weakest defensive tool and even that will play at the position. Power offensive profile could land him fifth or sixth in the order on a good club. Some questions about his long term hitting ability, but he shows good aptitude AMD solid hands that should let his power play.
