Last year at Standford, the 21-year-old finished with a .394 batting average and a 1.1777 OPS. Impressively enough, Troy did not whiff at a single 95+ fastball over a 48-pitch span. This led Troy to be listed as MLB Pipelines #17 overall prospect.
Additionally, with his strong arm, Troy has proven that he can play multiple positions. During his three seasons at Standford, the slugger played a little bit of everything around the infield.
The Arizona Diamondbacks next pick will be in the 2nd round at 48th overall.
