Stryker Trahan Thrilled To Be a Diamondback

Stryker Trahan comes from a family of catchers in Louisiana. That much we learned Monday night after the Diamondbacks made him the 26th overall pick of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Monday night.

Trahan said he's been a catcher since he started playing baseball. His parents, uncles, an aunt and a few cousins all served behind the plate, and his favorite major-league catcher is Jonathan Lucroy of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Trahan hopes everything goes smoothly with contract negotiations so that he can join the D-backs organization. He is committed to Mississippi for college, but admittedly wasn't thinking about that as he and his family reveled in the joy of his selection.

"Before I knew it, I was being thrown in the pool," Trahan said of the draft day celebration at his home, where family and friends gathered.

After Monday's day of congratulations for the high-school senior, there's a sense from both the D-backs and Trahan that both parties can agree to a deal and bonus money.
