Travis continues to develop his game. This time showing as a C/SS. Behind the dish, he sits in well with athletic actions presenting a low target. He is quick to block working to center pitches in the dirt. Throws down to 2B are accurate coming from a clean exchange (pop times as low as 2.34). At SS, he shows active footwork and moves well around the GB. He present his glove, extending it out in front funneling smoothly. He gathers well and works in-line toward 1B. Playing through the ball more will help to improve his defensive skill set in the MIF. With the bat, Travis shows a square setup with rhythm to load. He utilizes his lower 1/2 well and hits the ball where it's pitched, using the whole field. Relaxing/loosening his grip will allow for more bat whip and increased bat speed. Only a 2018 grad - Travis has worked hard and molded himself into quite a player.

On the hill, Travis works down in the zone, he gets good extension on his pitches, and he rotates well through to his target. Offensively, Travis showed quiet action, a still head, and the ability to keep his hands inside the ball well.

Travis continues to prove that he is an athletic player that has potential at multiple positions. On the mound, he attacked the zone displaying good movement to his FB. His balance is controlled with a fluid free arm action. He can work on maintaining his arm speed on off speed pitches. Defensively, Travis fields out in front with soft/sure hands. He has good quickness but will need to focus on learning how to play through the ball and rely on his body to help with throws. Offensively, Travis has solid mechanics with good balance and lower half. Improvements will be made as he gets his stride foot down earlier and allows the ball to travel.
