Trooping up to the Majors
Michael Chavis is a name Boston fans should get familiar with. Let me start by saying since being called up this young man from Georgia has been raking the ball in the majors. He was the 26th overall pick in the 2014 MLB draft. Coming from The Double-A Portland Sea Dogs where he was .318/.388/.641 with 17 homers and 55 RBIs in 250 plate appearances. With confidence to be your future second baseman, he will improve better defensively and offensively.
PED & Suspension
In the beginning of last season Michael was suspended 80 games by the MLB for PEDS. Boston’s #1 prospect. He was apologetic for his actions in his role. Chavis said : “Over the past several months, I have been searching for an answer as to how a prohibited substance I have never heard of, DHMCT, was detected in my urine during the offseason.” Chavis immediately accepted blame and issued a public apology. “I also want to apologize for the negative attention brought to myself, my family, the Red Sox, our fans and everyone who supports me”. Red Sox fans can hope that this upcoming All Star will not let this to happen again. This young team is too promising to allow distractions get in the way.
2019 rookie season:
Michael made his major league debut in April. His stats have been off the charts since being called up to the majors. Batting .333, with 6 home runs, and 13 runs batted in, with 51 at bats. Showing improvement each game. Hitting a walk off single to win a game against the Colorado Rockies. Impressive, especially being someone who has a lot to prove since his suspension. The New York Yankees currently have a lead in the AL East. The Red Sox currently sit at 26-23, 3rd in the AL East. Chavis wants to remain on the team he needs to be the best man, beating out Holt and Pedroia once back from injuries. Pedroia is prone to injuries, it’s safe to say retirement will be coming soon.
The Boston Red Sox want to repeat as World Series Champions, they just need dominance on both sides of the field.
Alex Cora – non committal
Manager Alex Cora is not showing commitment to Chavis. Although he’s applauding Michael for what he’s done, Alex is committed to winning. Whomever gets the win will get the start. This team is eager to be champs again. Michael is clutch for this team. Chavis is so talented he can play any position. We need young men like him who can be the new leaders of this team. Let’s hope Chavis is the next Big Thing.
