Double-A Portland Sea Dogs

Final Score: Sea Dogs 2, New Hampshire Fisher Cats 1

Notable Pitchers:

Williams Jerez (2 IP, 3 H, R, 2 BB)

Notable Position Players:

Carlos Asuaje (1-3, 2B, K)

Tzu-Wei Lin (0-2, BB, SB)

Manuel Margot (2-4, 2B)

Henry Ramos (0-2, 2 BB)

Sam Travis (2-4, SB, 2 K)

  • Travis’s first professional season has been a success anyway you slice it as he’s hitting .302/.361/.406 in Double-A just a year out of college. One underrated aspect of Travis’s performance is his surprising speed on the bases as the first baseman has swiped 13 bags on the year. Granted, he has been caught 9 times so speed might not be a major part of his game going forward, but it’s still an intriguing element of his season.
