Boston's Sam Travis and more prospects worth watching

I arrived at Allentown, Pennsylvania’s awesome, bacon-scented Coca-Cola Park early enough Friday night to see the Pawtucket Red Sox take their batting practice, and promising first base prospect Sam Travis was one to focus on. Travis, noted by Keith Law as Boston’s No. 6 prospect prior to the season, boasts a sweet, right-handed swing, homered the night before and if the power develops -- and it should -- one can see a bright future for him in Boston and for fantasy owners. As you might have heard, an older, key member of the Red Sox is making the rounds in his final big league season and opportunity should be there, but fantasy owners generally don’t pay much attention to first-base prospects.
