by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays GM expects Devon Travis to open season at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday he had no plans to trade outfielder Anthony Gose, but he really wanted prospect Devon Travis, who was acquired in a Wednesday trade with the Tigers. He added the trade addressed areas of needs for both teams, but the deal for the Blue Jays "has everything to do with Devon Travis."

Anthopoulos said Travis "does a lot of things well," and has the chance to compete for the starting job at second base this spring. Although, Anthopoulos cautioned Travis hasn't played above Double-A and expects him to start the season at Triple-A.

Travis entered the 2014 season as a top-100 prospect (No. 84), according to Baseball America. He played in 100 games this past season for Double-A Erie, batting .298 with a .358 on-base percentage, .460 slugging percentage and .817 OPS. He also had seven triples, 20 doubles, 10 home runs, 52 RBI and 68 runs.

Bernier elected free agency, and Pino is expected to become a free agent as well. Pino made his major-league debut in 2014 and finished the season with a 5.07 ERA and 50:14 K:BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings over 11 starts. Bernier was just 2 for 7 with the Twins in 2014.

Omar Infante still impacted by shoulder woes


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Royals second baseman Omar Infante is still being bothered by shoulder issues, according to the Kansas City Star.

Infante admitted that he's had pain all season. "When I swing in BP, I feel a lot of pain," Infante said. "I can’t swing really hard. I feel bad, because all year, I’ve felt something." Infante does not participate in pre-inning throwing, as he wants to save his bullets for when he needs them. Despite the issue, manager Ned Yost has not shied away from using Infante as a starter in the playoffs. After the season, Infante plans to have the injury examined. "When the year is over, we’ll have to check everything," he said. "I want to come back next year to feel good. This year has been very tough for me."
