Saints Increase Depth By Signing Versatile Trevor Hairgrove

ST. PAUL, MN July 19, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (July 18, 2013) – With injuries significantly affecting the St. Paul Saints for the first time in the 2013 season, they took a big step toward improving their depth by signing free agent utility player Trevor Hairgrove.  The 23-year old has played multiple games at every position except catcher in his three year professional career.

 

            Hairgrove began the 2013 season playing in four games for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim’s Double-A affiliate in Arkansas, before being sent to High-A Inland Empire, where he spent the last three months.  Prior to being released on July 15, he was hitting .194 with six doubles, nine RBI, and 18 walks between the two stops. 

 

            Hairgrove was selected by the Angels in the 18th round of the 2011 MLB Draft out of the University of California-Riverside, the same school that Saints starting pitcher Anthony Claggett attended.  He posted a career high batting average of .254 in 2011 for rookie club Orem.  In 2012 he played the entire season for Single-A Cedar Rapids where he tallied 80 hits, 22 of which were for extra bases, and 30 RBI. While he has played virtually everywhere, he spent a majority of the time on the left side of the infield, playing 83 games at shortstop and 55 at third base. 

 

            Hairgrove capped a very successful collegiate career at UC Riverside in 2011 with a senior season to remember. He led the Highlanders in batting average (.336), slugging percentage (.453), hits (72).  He also led the Big West Conference with 168 assists.  After the season he was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association First-Team All-West Region.

 

            In high school Hairgrove was a standout at Redlands East Valley High School in California.  He was named All-League after both his junior and senior seasons.  In 2006 he was named First-Team All-County and played in the North-South All Star Showcase before also being selected to the Dodgers Elite Team.
