RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Travis had his first full season in the minors in 2015, hitting .307/.381/.452/.833 in 559 plate appearances in two stops at High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. The right-handed collegiate out of Indiana, who was selected in the second round of the 2014 draft, hit right handers (.301) and left handers (.325) equally well. His performance was good enough to earn the organizational award as minor league offensive player of the year. His advanced approach, consistent contact and on-base skills make him an above-average hitting prospect, but his present and projected power isn’t quite at the level we’re accustomed to seeing out of a first baseman. He hit just nine homers in 2015, but supplemented that with 32 doubles and six triples while knocking in 78 runs. His lack of athleticism keeps him at first base, so how the bat develops power will dictate his upside in the majors.
