Coming off a torn ACL that wiped out what seemed like a promising 2016 campaign, first baseman Sam Travis sure has come back into spring training following up on the strong spring he had a year ago.
Through four spring training games, the young pick from Indiana University has gone 3-8, including this bomb a bomb of a home run off of Yankees prospect Justus Sheffield.
For Travis, the solid to this years’ spring is furthering off of what he built last spring, in which he hit .469 with two homers and 13 RBIs.
As the month of March rolls on for Travis and the Red Sox, Travis will surely be a player to watch. Along with Travis, watching how Moreland handles offensive, and maybe speculating a bit, but maybe how Sandoval plays third base as well. With Sandoval still a question mark in a position of need, the Red Sox could and have in the past shown willing to throw different players into the fire on the fly.
