    • Travis has returned from winter ball due to a minor hip injury, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. There doesn't appear to be any concern over Travis' hip, but the Red Sox are stressing precaution over their first baseman, and will let him rest up before spring training begins in a few months. During the course of the 2017 season, he played in 33 games for Boston, slashing .263/.325/.342 with one RBI and 13 runs scored.

    • Red Sox's Sam Travis: Will see back-to-back starts
      By RotoWire Staff

      Travis will start back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports. Travis has just one at-bat since his last start Sept. 12, so manager John Farrell will include him in the lineup a couple days in a row in an effort to keep him sharp. Travis will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday night and hit seventh against Orioles starter Kevin Gausman.

    • Red Sox's Sam Travis: Not pleased with production
      By RotoWire Staff

      Travis hit .234 with runners in scoring position and knocked in just 24 runs over 82 games at Triple-A Pawtucket, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. "There were a number of times I came up with runners in scoring position and I didn't come through or hit into a double play," he said Saturday. "That's not me. That's not who I am. I'm a guy that drives in runs." Travis understands he needs to be better in those situations. While he's not a big home run hitter, Travis has shown the ability to drive in runs when presented the opportunity to do so in the minors. The Red Sox still have confidence in the 24-year-old, but also plan to introduce fellow prospect Michael Chavis to first base during the Arizona Fall League. It was common thought that Travis would eventually become Boston's everyday first baseman, perhaps as soon as 2018, but he'll be pushed for that job if Chavis can deftly handle first base.

    • Red Sox's Sam Travis: Recalled from Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Travis was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday. This move was inevitable, given Travis' place on the 40-man roster. He is hitting .270/.351/.375 with six home runs and six steals in 82 games at Triple-A, and he has a career .279/.380/.395 slash line in 50 MLB plate appearances. Look for him to get some starts at first base against lefties down the stretch.
