Will Travis Swaggerty Make It in the Bigs?

SwaggyT was the 10th pick in 2018 but has yet to compile 700 professional ABs. In fact 457 of those ABs were in 2019 in A+. Due to The Covid and his injury last year, he has only compiled 41 ABs since 2019. Now he is coming back from a shoulder injury.

His best tools are speed, defense, and a strong arm. It is unclear to me if it was his throwing arm that got hurt last year. If so, his recovery is all the more critical. There has always been questions about how he will hit. The Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 60 | Arm: 55 | Field: 60 | Overall: 45

I can't see him making the team in ST. He needs to get at least 200 ABs at AAA before he can be ready to be called up. I think he will be called up in the 2nd half of 2022 so the team can see what they have. He is already 24 and will be 25 next August. It is a make it year for him.
