by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:05 pm ET) What was expected is now official - Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis will begin a rehab assignment Friday for Triple-A Buffalo, per Sportsnet. He is set to lead off and serve as the designated hitter.

Travis has been out with a shoulder injury since May 16. It is anticipated that he will return to the Jays when eligible, which would make his stint in the minors quite short. When he returns, he will be on a four-game hitting streak.


Indians 2B Jason Kipnis up to 48 hits in May


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:16 am ET) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis collected two more hits Thursday against the Mariners, giving him 15 multihit games and 48 total hits in May. The 48 hits are the most in May by a Cleveland player since at least 1914, surpassing Bobby Avila's 1954 record of 47, per MLB.com.

Kipnis is the first Indians player to have 48 hits, 28 runs and 20 extra-base hits in a month since July 1936.

Kipnis has a .449/.532/.738/1.270 slash line in 26 May games. He also has three triples, four home runs, 13 doubles, 16 RBI, 14 walks, 28 runs and three stolen bases.

"All winter, I think I kept telling you that he was going to come out with a vengeance," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "And that's exactly what it looks like. He's attacking every game. He's in the middle of everything."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Angels infielder Grant Green is getting the start at second base for Wednesday's contest with the Padres. Green was just recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday after starting the year with the big club.

"It’s nice," Green said, per the Orange County Register. "I feel comfortable there. I have felt comfortable there for a long time. It’s nice to get back in the infield and play kind of where I want to play."

Green is at the keystone position and batting ninth for manager Mike Scioscia, while Johnny Giavotella gets the day off. 


Blue Jays INF Steve Tolleson has tweaked groin


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Blue Jays infielder Steve Tolleson was unavailable for Wednesday's game due to a tweaked groin, according to ESPN.com. 

Tolleson was lifted in the sixth inning of Tuesday's game, though no injury was initially reported. The injury to Tolleson required Russell Martin, who originally came up as an infielder, to play a couple of innings at second base on Wednesday. It was just the second time in his career that Martin played at second. 

The team has not provided an update on Tolleson's status for Friday's game in Minnesota.

Blue Jays' Devon Travis could begin rehab games this weekend


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis fielded ground balls on Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury. Travis has been on the disabled list since May 21, and is hopeful to return when first eligible. 

The next step for Travis is to swing a bat, according to Sportsnet. Manager John Gibbons said Travis isn't "too far off" in his recovery, and a rehab assignment could start this weekend

The rookie second baseman is eligible to come off of the DL on Monday, but may not be quite ready by then. He received a cortisone shot last week, and started to see some progress Tuesday.

"The first few days were pretty sore," Travis said, per MLB.com. "I guess after the shot I was like, 'Man, this shot made it worse.' The doctor said that's normal, though. They get that shot pretty deep down in there. The first couple of days are sore, and yesterday was really like the first day where I started feeling good again.

"I feel much better," Travis said. "Every day since I got the shot has been much better. That's what we're shooting for. Literally, every day there has been a noticeable difference."

When he comes back, the rookie second baseman will pick up a modest four-game hitting streak and a .271 season batting average.
