Sox Call Up #1 Prospect Chavis
The Red Sox #1 rated prospect, Michael Chavis, is coming up to the big leagues. Not only is Dustin Pedroia on the injured list, but now Eduardo Nunez is out.
Chavis and infielder Tzu-Wei Lin will take their place and handle second base. Chavis is a righthanded hitter while Lin is a lefty.
Pedroia is out with the knee issue. Nunez has a back strain.
Chavis will be interesting to watch. He's really and third baseman/first baseman but has been working at Triple-A Pawtucket at second base. He's a power guy who clubbed 31 homers in the minors two years ago. Chavis was the Sox first round pick in 2014 out of high school.
Lin gets his second callup of the season.
