After being a third round pick by the Reds in 2015 out of Louisiana Lafayette, Trahan has risen quickly as he has shown consistency at the plate. Trahan has strong speed and is a good defender as well, showing that he is a well-rounded prospect. Due to this, he has risen quickly and the Reds have been aggressive by having him skip Low-A. After a slow start to High-A in 2016, hitting around .240 through May, Trahan still made an impact. Through May 24, Trahan had reached base in 30 straight games at the level. Low strikeout totals also make Trahan an appealing prospect.
