RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Travis is a quick-rising prospect who started the 2016 season at Triple-A, after just 281 plate appearances at the Double-A level. A monster spring training fueled the club's decision to challenge him with the aggressive assignment, but a torn ACL cut short his season in May. He's on schedule to return during spring training. The injury shouldn't hurt defensively, as Travis was already limited to first base. Fortunately, Hanley Ramirez isn't a long-term solution, nor is Mitch Moreland (one-year deal). So, the path to MLB is clear for Travis, whose hit tool offsets a paucity of power, though he did show improvement in the area in 2016. The Chicago native hit six homers in 173 at-bats after hitting nine in all of 2015. Opponents are taking notice and developed a plan of attack against Travis, whose strikeout rate climbed to 21 percent in 2016. The injury robbed him of time to adjust, which will be a primary goal when he opens the 2017 season at Pawtucket.

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.
