Sam Travis On Track To Be 'Hidden' Force On Red Sox

Emerging Red Sox Star Sam Travis
Way back in November, we wrote that Red Sox prospect Sam Travis could be a factor on the 2017 team. Now, the mainstream sports media is catching up—sort of. According to The Boston Herald's Evan Drellich, Travis is a "2018 arrival at the latest." Actually, we think he could be anchored at first base (or DH) by the All-Star Break this year—especially when Mitch Moreland inevitably regresses to the mean. As long as he is healthy, Travis can be a beast at the plate. Before suffering a torn ACL last Spring, he was one of the hottest hitters in camp (.469, 13 RBIs). Keep an eye on this guy in this year's Spring Training.
