Red Sox Sign Indiana U. First Baseman Travis

The Red Sox signed Sam Travis—the 67th overall pick in the MLB Draft—to a contract worth $846,000. The right-hand-hitting first baseman hit .347 with 12 HRs for Indiana University this year. He reportedly has both power and plate discipline—a combo the Red Sox are currently in very short supply of at the major and minor league levels. Said Director Of Amateur Scouting Amiel Sawdaye said. "He's another guy that's really going to use the Monster well and then also put some balls onto Lansdowne Street." We can't wait!
