Thank you so much!!!
Michael Chavis is a 3rd baseman and is currently ranked as the sox's prospect. He was drafted out of High School in 2014 and had an average of .282 and 31 homers last year.
Chavis has a good arm and can get the ball off the bat relatively well, which makes him a potentially dangerous infielder. There has even been some talk about him switching from his 3rd base position to 1st.
Chavis was drafted as a shortstop, but has played most of his time at 3rd. However, he was utilized as a DH often last season due to issues with his throwing arm. Even still, Chavis' walk rate and strike out rate is too high, which makes him a potential issue if and when he is brought up to the majors.
According to minorleagueball.com, Chavis could make his debut as early as late in the 2018 season. What do you guys think? Obviously there is always more than what we can deliver on here so make sure you look up online to learn more! Let us know how you feel down in the comments below!
