Trea Turner's Player Profile

Hit/On-base – Turner’s swing stays in the path with above-average bat speed, and he has shown a willingness to take pitches and work counts over his first two years for North Carolina State. He doesn’t strike out much and has shown an advanced understanding of pitch recognition.

Power – Turner is much more of a gap-to-gap hitter, though he does have enough strength to occasionally put the ball over the wall. Double digit homers isn’t out of the question, but his swing and frame isn’t conducive to bringing totals much higher than that.Glove – After spending his freshman year at third base for the Wolfpack, Turner was just find at shortstop last year, using his athleticism to make plays to his left and right and showing above-average hands. The arm strength is above-average, too, so you will occasionally see the spectacular out of Turner.

Speed – There may be guys with more speed in this draft than Turner, but there’s not many. Turner is a burner (excuse the rhyme) on the bases, and is the type of guy that could steal 50+ bases if given the opportunity.
