Travis was put on assignment last week, to make room for the newcomer catcher Kevin Plawecki. However, he has now cleared the waiver and is soon joining Triple-A Pawtucket.
He was the second-round draft pick of Boston back in 2014. He has played about 111 big league games for Red Sox over the course of three seasons. The 26-year-old baseman hit .230/.288/.371 in that period. Also, some 7 homers posting .215/.274/.382 in total 59 games last year.
His latest game was at Fenway Park in Boston on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, against the San Francisco Giants. He left the field after receiving an injury caused by his dive in the third on his triple during the 6th inning.
The injury left him exposed and he was out of options. This meant Red Sox could easily put him to waivers. They needed it to be, as the plan was to open a spot for newly signed catcher Kevin Plawecki. So, the Sox designated Travis and luckily were successful in getting him out of waivers onto Pawtucket.
Just like the outrighted lefty Brian Johnson, Travis is expected to be seen in the major league camp. Two of the Boston Red Sox players – Michael Chavis and Bobby Dalbec – will play first base. While Travis and the others namely Josh Ockimey and newly signed minor-leaguer, free agent Nick Longhi will play at Triple-A.
The spring training is starting next month and the schedule is packed with all potential opponents. On the other hand, Boston Red Sox has its hands full with so much to discuss among themselves. Like salaries of arbitration-eligible players i.e. the outfielders Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, and Jackie Bradley Jr. Also the left-handed Eduardo Rodriguez, and right-handed relievers Brandon Workman, Matt Barnes, and Heath Hembree.
The matters get resolved or not the training is in schedule and it’ll happen. So if you are anticipating to see them live in the stadium. Cheap Boston Red Sox Tickets are on sale at Bbtix.
