2023 MLB DRAFT: Tommy Troy, 2B — Stanford

Already highly touted on Draft rankings and mocks heading into the year, Tommy Troy lived up to the hype and then some, actually improving his stock by the time the year ended with a strong junior season at Stanford. Considered a late first-rounder and even early second-rounder by some entering 2023, Troy is now a possible top ten pick…or sooner. He’ll finish with a 1.014 OPS at the collegiate level, and set career highs this year with 17 home runs and 58 RBI. Very polished on the infield, he’s another alum who would likely move very quickly in whatever system he ended up in.

Future Stars Series 2023 MLB Draft Profile: Tommy Troy

******

FSS Event History: Troy was first seen at the NorCal Pro Combine back in 2018, but truly made his impact on the big stage a year later at International Week, where he had three RBI on the weekend, including a big, two-run double in Game 2.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 614: 9

Joe Doyle on Troy:

Tommy Troy is one of the strongest players in the 2023 class with a beautiful, compact, violent right-handed swing with legitimate plus power to all parts of the yard. Troy covers every quadrant of the strike zone and has one of the best resumes in college baseball handling velocity.

An above average hit tool, maybe plus, Troy has a shot at hitting .280 at the next level with impact and thunder in the bat. There’s a very real shot we’re talking about one of the more impactful second base bats in baseball here 5 years from now.

Troy is an above average runner who gets to balls on the dirt and makes plays, though his average arm and shorter, choppier steps will limit him to second base as a pro where he projects to be an average defender. Some scouts would like to see what the profile looks like in centerfield at the next level. Troy got some run in centerfield for Cotuit on the Cape in 2022. The profile here is a bat-first infielder with power as the calling card. The whole thing could look something akin to Bret Boone when all is said and done.
