Trey Lipscomb Impresses Nats With On Base Streak and Glove Work

Trey Lipscomb Impresses Nats With On Base Streak and Glove Work

With the MLB season in its infancy stages, sometimes it’s difficult to find MLBbros providing production in the same situations. While the Washington Nationals have found themselves with some early season struggles falling to 2-4 after a 7-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday led by three MLBbros, Andrew McCutchen, Ke’Bryan Hayes and Michael A. Taylor…


…they have found a diamond in the rough in Trey Lipscomb aka “The Truth” who has reached base in every game (as of this writing). He got onto the field Nick Senzel broke his thumb.

Lipscomb placed himself directly in the path of’s radar in his professional debut against the Cincinnati Reds legging out an infield single. reporter Charles Nyonga was the first to highlight “The Truth” in the Nationals lineup in this week’s “Take That” segment…


But how surprising is Trey Lipscomb’s early success? To answer that question, the transition from the University of Tennessee to the Majors needs to be looked at in detail .

Trey Lipscomb… An MLBbro InThe College Years!

Lipscomb had a strong career at Tennessee from 2019-22 starting 78 games out of the 103 games he played in. His performances at the plate spearheaded the Vols’ dominance in the SEC Eastern division, collecting the regular season and tournament championships in his final year with the team.


In 66 appearances our MLBbro tallied 89 hits with 22 Bro Bombs (first Tennessee player since 2009 to hit over 20 homers in a season!), 84 RBI, 68 runs, 19 doubles and three triples. Add the 26 walks he collected, it’s evident that this guy found his groove on getting on base early.

He parlayed a career .331 batting average, 24 homers, 103 RBI, 83 runs and 37 walks into being drafted in the 3rd round (84th overall) by the Washington Nationals.

Trey Lipscomb is showing that he is more than a bat… he is “The Truth” in the field with plenty of opportunities to back it up!

Our MLBbro won a Minor League Gold Glove at third base while spending time at every infield position. After a dominating performance at the plate hitting .400 in spring training, Trey was one of the final cuts the team made before being called up almost immediately on March 30th. That Gold Glove experience last year has really helped him in a three game stretch when he completed 15 opportunities at third place cleanly for outs.

Talk about being thrown in the fire at the hot corner…

In baseball, 15 plays in such a short amount of time is uncommon. Who led the National League last year with that amount of chances? Pittsburgh Pirates MLBbro third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes. He had multiple situations much like Trey Lipscomb is thriving now. A couple of plays during this stretch illustrates this…

One of his better plays was turning this 5-4-3 double play to stop a potential big inning against the Reds. Notice how easy he makes this play look while on the move…


Check out the range Trey has here snagging a hard hit ball by Santiago Espinal up the line for a potential double. Even though Espinal made it to first base safely, the play by our MLBbro not only saved an extra base hit, but shows the potential of Lipscomb being able to stick to the main roster and contributing!


Plays like these here save runs for a Washington Nationals team that is struggling to score enough runs to win games to start the season. Even through this tough time, our MLBbro can help establish a defensive reputation for the Nats in the meantime.

Our newest MLBbro has done very well for himself in his first five games in the field and batter’s box. His ability to get on base while keeping opponent’s off them is found money for the Washington Nationals. While building an on base streak that has grown to five games, Lipscomb has made the plays that he needed to make with his glove.

While MLBbros such as Mookie Betts and Aaron Judge command the headlines as superstars, Trey Lipscomb is showing the importance of being consistent and steady.
