A member of the three-man contingent hailing from the University of Miami, Esteban Tresgallo has needed little time to adjust to Division I collegiate baseball, earning himself a starting spot with the Hurricanes in his rookie season that saw him make his presence felt on a team that earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Practically an every-game starter for the Hurricanes, Tresgallo appeared in 49 games – 42 starts – and batted .243 on 34 hits in 140 at-bats. He launched eight doubles, one triple and three homers while driving in eight and scoring 22 runs.
A draft pick by the Seattle Mariners out of high school, Tresgallo played for Coach Julio Ruuira at Colegio Marista in his hometown of Guaynabo, P.R. In his senior season, he hit .400 with five home runs, 20 RBI and 10 stolen bases to help the team win the Puerto Rico prep title and while earning himself All-State honors. He also earned All-County honors during both his sophomore and junior years.
Tresgallo is the son of Ruben and Clara Pores. He has one brother (Ruben) and one sister (Clara) and is pursuing a degree in Biology.
