WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Boswell missed the 2014 season with a wrist injury, then played short and third for Texas in 2015, and short in 2016.  He’s a solid defender who probably profiles as a utility player as a pro.  He hasn’t shown much with the bat, hitting 253/376/348 in 2015 and 241/303/397 in 2016.  He drew a lot of walks in 2015, but his walk rate fell sharply the next year.  He struck out a lot both years, in over a third of his ABs in 2015 and over a quarter in 2016.
