Pair of Red Sox Prospects Crack Top 100

Red Sox prospects Jason Groome and Michael Chavis were both featured in Keith Law and Baseball America’s list of the top 100 prospects for the 2018 season.

Jason Groome, a high profile left-handed pitcher, was placed at 30th for Law and 83rd for Baseball America. His ranking is ten spots lower than his ranking last season in Law’s list, mainly due to the number of injuries he racked up last season. The Red Sox should not be too worried based on the fact that he has been on the list for two consecutive years and is only 19-years-old.

Infielder Michael Chavis ranked at 76th for Law and 85th for Baseball America. Even though he is high up on the list, he was still very consistent last season and did not let a broken finger slow him down despite having to play with it for the majority of the season.

“One of the biggest things was the mental aspect and being able to handle the failure that came and being able to separate it day to day,” Chavis said.

Chavis, who normally plays shortstop and third base, was invited to big league camp after playing first base in the Arizona Fall League. Chavis talked about the struggles of transitioning to new positions.

“The transition from shortstop to first base was definitely easier than my transition from shortstop to third base,” Chavis said.

The Red Sox will begin Spring training on February 12 at JetBlue Park at Fenway South in Fort Myers, FL.
