Former Sonoma State University baseball student-athlete Trevor Abrams has signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants. Abrams, a native of Rocklin, California, becomes the 121st Sonoma State student-athlete in the history of the baseball program to be drafted or signed to a professional contract.
Abrams played his junior and senior campaigns in the Seawolf uniform in 2016 and 2017, respectively, and enjoyed a breakout year in his final collegiate campaign, hitting .293 with a team-best 10 doubles as SSU's everyday third baseman in 2017. He began his career at NCAA Division I Saint Mary's College in Moraga where he played in 20 games as a freshman and sophomore.
Abrams is the fourth Seawolf in 2017 to sign a professional contract. Pitcher Matt Hammonds was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 29th round of the 2017 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft and competed for the Gulf Coast League Orioles at the MLB Rookie level, making four appearances (one start) for a total of 7.2 innings. SSU alum O'Koyea Dickson played for the Los Angeles Dodgers this past year before joining the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan.
A total of 11 former SSU baseball players have signed contracts with the San Francisco Giants organization, the last was Gary Moran in 2009.
