On occasion, we will be featuring videos here from the SoxProspects YouTube page. Today's video is of Pawtucket first baseman Sam Travis. The video features the 22-year-old getting several at-bats in his final regular-season games of the year before suffering a torn ACL on May 29 while chasing down a runner caught in a rundown.
Travis was off to a strong start in his first taste of Triple-A ball, posting a line of .272/.332/.434 with six home runs. In the video, Travis faces two top of the top pitching prospects in baseball, Pittsburgh Pirates right-handers Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon.
We plan to incorporate more video this year to supplement our regular scouting material, so check back here and on the YouTube page frequently.
