    Holt will probably always be a better defensive OF'er than Chavis can ever become.

    It was nice seeing him keep the BBs down last night.

    That looks to be his biggest concern area.

    And how does his bat compare to Chavis'?

    I'm optimistic on both of them, power is a good tool to have. If anything else develops with it it's easy to carve out a MLB career. But I just can't get over Dalbecs K rate. You have to make contact for your power to be worth anything and if he's K'ng more than 33% of the time in the lower minors.

    They're also the same age at the same level but Chavis has missed a bunch of time the last two seasons. He could easily be in the majors today or in Pawtucket knocking on the door if he didn't get suspended. Again, two good assets to have, Sox will be lucky and benefit greatly if one of them pans out. Chavis has a little bit of swing and miss in his game too, and I'm not sure he has the height to play fist base, which I'm sure is not uber important.

    Ockimey's K rate is real bad too. 1 out 3 at bats a K, not good. That's a steady trend throughout his career. At least Chavis and Dalbec can hit HR's, Ockimey so-so with power at such a high rate of Strikeouts.

    Ockimey is also a first base only profile. Funny, if he could play a plus SS, C, or CF, he'd probably be a top 100 prospect in all of baseball with his bat. It's good, but you almost need to be great if you're a first base only profile.

    Ks would be okay, if he could keep up the .350+ OBP, but it usually doesn't work out that way with these high K prospects.

    Here's a position by position look at how long are starters are under team control and the in-house prospects that could possibly become an in-house solution to the possible departures.

    After...

    2018
    2B- Kinsler
    --- (Pedey/Holt/Nunez/Hernandez/Quiroz)
    1B/DH- Pearce
    --- (Chavis/Dalbec/Ockimey/Travis)

    2019
    DH- JD Martinez (opt out)
    --- (Chavis/Dalbec/Ockimey/Travis)
    SS- Bogaerts
    --- (Holt/Chatham)
    1B- Moreland
    --- (Chavis/Dalbec/Ockimey/Travis/Casas)
    Utility- Holt & Utility- Nunez
    --- (Hernandez, Quiroz/Chatham)

    2020
    RF- Betts
    ---(Decker/Duran/Brannen)
    CF- JBJ
    --- (Decker/Duran/Brannen)
    C- Leon
    --- (Swihart)


    2021
    2B- Pedroia (may retire before this)
    ---Utility- Nunez
    C- Vazquez (option for 2022)
    --- (Swihart)

    Ockimey K/AB:

    33% 2014 Rookie
    39% 2015 A (short)
    32% 2016 A
    32% 2017 A+/AA
    36% 2018 AA/AAA

    He's going in the wrong direction this year.
