Michael Chavis: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
