Red Sox IF Michael Chavis:
Michael Chavis is another second year Red Sox player who will look to have a breakout season. He was initially drafted in the first round of the 2014 MLB Draft. He slowly moved up the ranks in the minors despite dealing with injuries and an 80-game suspension after a failed drug test.
Chavis was called up on April 19, 2019 to make his major league debut, doing so a day later. He hit a double in his first career at-bat, as a pinch-hitter.
He stayed in Boston for the majority of the season, even winning the American League Rookie of the Month for May. In August, he suffered a shoulder sprain that kept him out for the rest of the 2019 season. Chavis finished the season with a .254 batting average, 18 home runs, and 58 runs batted in, in just 95 games played.
He is now fully healthy and ready for the 2020 season after having 31 plate appearances during Spring Training 1.0. Chavis had a .214 average.
We could see a breakout from Chavis because of the way he played right when he got called up last year. Before dealing with an injury, he was playing exceptional. Now that he is no longer dealing with an injury, he will be at the top of his game when the shortened season roles around. Hopefully he can take a significant step up for the 2020 regular season.
