2018 Boy, the Red Sox love prospects named “Travis,” huh? Since he was signed to an overslot deal in 2015, we’ve been hearing how Lakins was rawer and had more upside than many collegiate right-handers. Both sentiments proved true in 2017, as Lakins torched High-A before Double-A hitters returned the favor. In Salem, Lakins used a four-pitch repertoire headlined by a low-to-mid-90s fastball to strike out nearly 28 percent of the batters he faced. Once in Portland, Lakins’ command left him, and his opposition pounced. But the real problem? He ended 2017 the same way he ended 2016—on the DL with a stress fracture in his right elbow. If Lakins can stay healthy and rediscover the command that let him dominate the Carolina League (yes, those are two big ifs), a future at the back of an MLB rotation is in play. A shift to the bullpen is looking more and more likely, though.
2017 Travis Lakins is the ever-rare projectable right-hander with college experience. His first go-around in Salem didn’t inspire much confidence, but that first year out of school is rough for a lot of us.
