Former UL Star Blake Trahan Off To Fast Spring Training Start
A former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun standout if off to a good start in spring training, as he competes for a spot on a Major League Baseball opening day roster.
Infielder Blake Trahan, who played for the Cajuns for three seasons, from 2013-2015, is playing well through the early portion of spring training, as he tries to make the Cincinnati Reds' opening day roster.
Through Cincinnati's first four games, Trahan has appeared in three, seeing time at both shortstop and second base, hitting a .375 (2-for-8) with a run scored and a walk.
A native of Kinder, La., Trahan, the 2015 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, appeared in 11 games for the Reds last September, collecting three hits in 14 at-bats, while scoring twice.
A 3rd-round draft choice of the Reds in 2015, Trahan has hit a .245, to go along with 2 home runs, and 31 runs batted in last season for Louisville, the Reds' AAA affiliate.
