Pay attention to Rangers catching prospect Jose Trevino - Minor League Ball

How do their shoe sizes compare?

Further offensive development is not impossible at all. The parallel that comes to mind is Yadier Molina, who like Trevino was a defensive specialist without a strong bat at first, but who maintained low strikeout rates as he moved up, got a major league job with his defense, and eventually developed as a hitter.

They even have the same height/weight data, both 5-11; Trevino is at 195 and Molina is 205 pounds, but when Molina was Trevino’s age he was also 195 pounds. Molina did have an age advantage in his profile; he was already in the majors at 23, though he hit just .216/.274/.321 (.595 OPS) that year.

But funny enough, the ZIPS projection for Trevino if he were promoted to the majors this year is .229/.260/.341, .601 OPS, which is almost exactly the same as Molina at the same age.

Hmm. . .

That doesn’t mean Trevino will turn out as well as Molina did, but there are parallels, enough that we cannot dismiss the idea that he will hit eventually.
