2020 Fantasy Outlook
Travis plays both first base and the outfield, with neither the defensive chops nor the power to handle either position on a full-time basis. He has worn out the Pawtucket-to-Fenway shuttle service the past few years as he continued to hit Triple-A pitching well, but couldn't find the same success at the big-league level. He has the unfortunate profile of a short-side platoon bat that made him an ideal partner for Mitch Moreland, but his upside is extremely limited otherwise. More playing time would not suit him well until he shows he can hit right-handed, major-league pitching. He is out of options, and the Red Sox DFA'd him in January after signing backup catcher Kevin Plawecki. He accepted his outright assignment, and even if he earns his way back onto the 40-man roster, there is very little fantasy upside here. Read Past Outlooks
