Troutman is a college senior who pitched as a reliever this past year for Lander University. He posted a 2.96 ERA in 27.1 innings, with a 30:13 K/BB ratio.  He was a catcher earlier in his college career, but switched to pitching full time in his junior year after poor results at the plate the prior year.  He throws 90-93 with a slider.  Troutman signed quickly.

2019
R+:  1-3-0, 5.87 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, 23.0 IP, 4.7 BB/9, 10.2 K/9

Troutman pitched in relief at Bristol.  Other than a good K rate, he mostly struggled.  He had trouble with both right- and left-handed hitters, and he finished the season especially badly, with a 9.31 ERA in August.  He had some trouble with gopher balls, allowing better than one every six innings.
