Devon Travis was highly over-drafted coming into the season. No power upside, no SB upside, and downside in AVG, injury, and batting order (last one already happened). His .339 career BABIP is unsustainable for a guy with below average speed and exit velo. If Brandon Phillips, Neil Walker, Joe Panik, Jorge Polanco, or Josh Harrison are available strongly consider a swap. I wouldn’t quite drop him for Adam Frazier, but there is a little more upside for the latter.
