2016

Chavis, a 2014 first-round draft pick, had himself a nice spring training and the 19-year-old earned a placement at Boston’s full-season affiliate in Greenville of the Low-A South Atlantic League. The full-season assignment may have been too aggressive, as Chavis started slowly and never hinted at the projected plus hit tool. He finished with a line of .223/.277/.405 while striking out a whopping 144 times in 471 plate appearances (30.5%). He has more potential as a hitter than he showed in 2015, but seems a long way off from being a first-team major leaguer at this point. Despite a short stature, he’s got a compact build and projects as an above-average power hitter –- his 16 home runs led the Drive. Defensively, he had problems with the accuracy of his throws and footwork, but he’ll remain at third base for now. Given his struggles last season, it would not be surprising to see him repeat at Low-A to begin 2016 with a quick promotion to High-A Salem likely.

2015

Chavis was Boston's first-round selection in the 2014 draft out of high school in Georgia. He signed quickly, and was assigned to the organization's Gulf Coast League affiliate. He slashed .269/.347/.425 in 150 plate appearances in the rookie league with 16 of his 36 hits going for extra bases. He's considered a polished hitter who grades out with solid-average power potential. Chavis was a shortstop in high school and will continue on that track initially in the organization, but he may switch to second or third base eventually. He participated in the Fall Instructional League before getting ready for his first full season of professional baseball. The Red Sox may elect to keep him at extended spring training to begin 2015, before an assignment to short-season Lowell during the summer.
