2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was quite a bit of buzz surrounding Chavis after his showing in the 2017 Arizona Fall League, but an 80-game suspension for a positive PED test took away a lot of his shine. Chavis did what he could to get some of it back after he served his ban, hitting .303/.388/.508 with six homers in 33 games with Double-A Portland to earn a late-season promotion to the Red Sox's top affiliate, but the suspension casts a shadow over his season and creates a sliver of doubt about the legitimacy of what he's done in the past. It's unfair to cast aside everything he's done. After all, Chavis is a legitimate pedigree guy, having been a first-round pick in 2014, but the true skills baseline can't be known. While the Red Sox added Chavis to the 40-man roster in the offseason, there's no real chance he will be with the club to start the season and he will likely need more than one long-term injury ahead of him to get an extended look in Boston in 2019.
