Travis Harrison 3b/OF
6'1 215lbs Bats Right/Throws Right
Travis Harrison was born October 17, 1992 in Aliso Viejo, California, US (Age 19) and had quite the high school career from Tustin High School. With a supplemental pick in the 2011 MLB draft the Twins selected Harrison with the 50th overall pick. There was talk he would be tough to sign because he had a scholarship to USC to play baseball. However, the Twins stepped up and got him signed at the last minute. Here is an exerpt from Bleacher Report, "A Southern California commit, Harrison bashed nine homers in his first 22 games for Tustin HS and finished the season with 12 long-balls and a .486 average." He obvously can mash the ball with 12 hr in only 22 games which is very impressive. Harrison is big and projectable so there are questions whether he can stick at 3rd or if he might end up at 1st or the outfield, but for now he will likely head to either Elizabethton or the GCL as a 3rd baseman.

My question is fans do you think Harrison will be able tostay at 3rd going forward?

Travis Harrison last night recorded not only his first Professional hit, but also his 1st professional homerun. With that said he also recored his 2nd and 3rd errors at 3rd base. On the season he is 1-11 with 3 errors in 3 games.

I get it.....he's 19 yrs old but he's too good for APP Lg after 10gms.
He may have to DH/split 3B w/Sano if sent to Beloit as he has 7e's, but his bat needs more challenges as a first round pick should be challenged. He should be promoted as he earns it, not promoted as his age dictates....Only 5months older than Sano, see if he can handle it

He may have committed his 14th error of the short season, but Travis Harrison was also 5-6 tonight with his third home run of the season. Hitting .371!

If there was no Miguel Sano in Beloit....could get a promotion!!!

John Sickel's just finished his 2013 prospect book. From time to time here shares some of the prospect write up's as a promotion. Here is the link for the write up on Travis Harrison along with some other guy named Billy Hamilton. Enjoy.

Anyone think Harrison goes A to A+ while Sano goes A+ to AA next summer?

Sano could be an interesting case this year, If his defense has improved as much as it has been reported, and he stays around .280 through mid July, he could be in AA for the last month of the year.

As for my opinion on Harrison, he is a top 100 draft pick that should be able to move up quickly. His pro-debut was ok, nothing spectacular. MLB scouts love his upside as a hitter. If Sano moves, Travis could move up to fill in.

I've said this counless times - Many of the top defenders in the MLB struggled in their early minor league careers. Harrison has the potential to be decent at 3B. Let the kid work on his understanding of the position (like Sano) and move thru the system patiently. He is a young kid. I see Ex. Spr. Training to ETown and then maybe CR for him more so then CR and Ft Myer.

Yeah I guess he could be linked rather with Vargas at 1B? as far as promotion timing....
