2004 SP Prospects, Trevor Lawhorn
#245 Trevor Lawhorn
Here is a card that I got signed back in May at a Wichita Wingnuts game. Trevor was playing for the Souix Falls Pheasants at the time.
Trevor was drafted by the Reds in the ninth round of the 2004 draft out of East Carolina. He was in the Reds organization for three years and got up to the high-A level. But after hitting .224 for Sarasota in 2006, Trevor was dealt to the Blue Jays organization. The Jays must have released him in Spring Training because he never played for any of their teams.
Instead, he started 2007 with Souix Falls and did good enough to get another look in affiliated ball. The Mariners picked him up and assigned him to their A team. He played with them for 29 games before joining the Nationals organization. He finished out 2007 with them and played with them in 2008 where he hit .236 at two levels of A ball. He even tried to convert to a pitcher that year, but he posted a 5.68 ERA in 6.1 innings. In 2009, it was back to Souix Falls and that is still where he plays now.
Trevor was the 2009 American Association All Star game MVP.
