TOP TEN TRAVIS TAIJERON by Tom Brennan
TRAVIS Taijeron may have been an 18th round pick, but play him everyday and he is a TOP TEN kind of a guy.
In 77 games, Travis has a staggering 32 doubles. Pause and appreciate that amazing number, which is 7 more than his closest PCL adversary.
Where else is Travis in the Top Ten in the PCL?
47 extra base hits - tied for first
66 RBIs - 3rd
56 Runs - 4th
.563 slug % - 7th
Strikeouts (alas) - 100 - 2nd
He also is in the Top 20 in homers (12), batting average(.306), and on base percentage (.389).
So congratulations on a fabulous first half of 2016, and may the strikeout rate improve. It is all that is keeping Travis out of the bigs right now.
