The Red Sox's official Grapefruit League schedule kicked off on Saturday against the New York Yankees, as Boston won 8-5 against their AL East rivals.
Third baseman Michael Chavis, Boston's highest-ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline, ripped his first homer of the spring in the third inning, a two-out, three-run oppo-shot to give the Sox a 6-3 lead:
Chavis decided that one game-winning dinger wasn't enough, as the very next day, the 23-year-old once again stepped up with two men on base and two outs, this time in the eighth inning against the Minnesota Twins:
Way to go down and get it! WITH elevation, and plenty of it!
That swing put the Red Sox up 7-5, as they went on to tack on an additional run in their 8-5 win.
Love to see it! Chavis immediately making an impact. It's only spring but who cares? You see the type of power he has. An oppo-line drive off a righty, a towering bomb to left off a lefty on a bad pitch! Love to see it. Should only expect more dingers out of Chavis this spring.
