Trent Mummey is a hard-nosed outfielder from Auburn University. Mummey originally came to Auburn from Pinson Valley High School in Pinson, Alabama, which is about 15 miles north of Birmingham and the former home of super-prospect Desmond Jennings. He was a solid prospect as a high school senior, but like he is now, he was underrated due to his size and lack of elite athleticism. He went undrafted and headed to Auburn, where he became an immediate starter in center field. His freshman campaign was fairly successful, and he added power to his game during his sophomore year. He then took his game to the Cape and played well there, too. However, he ended up breaking his leg right before the spring season started, and he missed close to six weeks. He has managed to reestablish his prospect value in his time back, and he’s continued to build on his success to the point where he can’t be ignored due to his small stature anymore. Thanks to respectable tools, he can be legitimately projected as a starting center fielder in the Major Leagues with adequate development time in the minors. At the plate, he features a solid-average hit tool with fringe-average power, and he uses both to really put a charge into a ball. He has minor work to do on pitch recognition, but so does every other draft prospect. He makes contact consistently, and while scouts would like to see him work the count a little bit more as a leadoff man, he’s more of a back-third of the order hitter at the pro level anyway. He’s an above-average to plus runner, too, so getting on base should be a priority. Defensively, he’s one of the best center fielders in this draft class, holding true plus center field tools and a solid-average to above-average arm. He’s a candidate to go in rounds three to five, and he should sign quickly for near slot money.
