Travis Swaggerty Getting Back to Form — And GM Has Noticed (+)



Pirates Prospects, Travis Swaggerty, Pittsburgh Pirates

For the Pittsburgh Pirates in spring training this year, outfielder Travis Swaggerty was certainly one of the standout performers.

The 25-year-old appeared in 19 games in the spring and slashed an impressive .379/.471/.690. He finished tied for second on the team in home runs with three and RBIs with 10. Swaggerty also stole a base and scored nine runs.

Due to his performance, it looked like Swaggerty had a strong chance of making the Pirates’ initial 26-man roster, but the Pirates opted to have the 2018 first-round draft pick begin the year in Indianapolis.

So far with Indianapolis, Swaggerty has carried over his strong spring to a pretty good start to the regular season in Triple-A, especially in the power department. Through 13 games with the Indians, Swaggerty has an even .800 OPS, a .229 ISO, four doubles, two triples, a homer and three RBIs to go along with three steals.

General manager Ben Cherington recently talked about his outfield prospect.
