Trending Down: Jiandido Tromp, RF, Reading
There aren’t really any high expectations for him and there are a few outfield prospects ahead of him right now, but Tromp has struggled this year in Reading.
Tromp is hitting just .227 with a .321 on-base percentage, and in his last ten games, he’s hitting just 7 for 38 in that time. However, all seven of those hits came in three games, so he failed to get a hit in seven of the ten games.
He wasn’t likely to be part of a Machado trade anyway, but at this point, his value is not high enough to be part of a package. He could end up being dealt in a separate deal for a lower caliber player than Machado, but for now, Tromp will likely be staying put in Reading.
If he does stay with the organization, he’ll have to become more consistent if he wants to make the big club.
