|Oblique injury sends Devon Travis to DL in minors |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Tigers second base prospect Devon Travis has been placed on the minor-league disabled list with a right oblique strain. Travis is considered the Tigers' second-best prospect by Baseball America.
Travis is off to a slow start for Double-A Erie, batting .143 (2 for 14) with one stolen base in four games.

(3/14/14) One-time premier pitching prospect Justin Miller is among five players dispatched to the minors by the Tigers on Friday. He is headed to Triple-A Toledo along with first baseman Jordan Lennerton and center fielder Daniel Fields. Third baseman Francisco Martinez has been assigned to Double-A Erie while second baseman Devon Travis was sent to minor league camp.
Miller was 9-1 with a 1.83 ERA with 77 strikeouts in 69 innings at the Double-A level in 2011 before Tommy John surgery halted his progress.
|Devon Travis is 'a ballplayer' |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) As a 13th-round pick in the 2012 MLB draft, Tigers second base prospect Devon Travis entered pro baseball with little fanfare. However, the 22-year-old prospect is quickly making a name for himself in the minors.
The 5-9, 185-pound Travis is batting .350 (28 for 80) with a .389 on-base percentage, .563 slugging percentage and .951 OPS through 21 games for Class A West Michigan. He also has one triple, three doubles, four home runs, 16 RBI and 19 runs.
"The guy's a ballplayer -- his picture's under that heading," said Dave Owen, the Tigers' director of player development, per The Detroit News. "He's obviously not a big kid, but he runs OK, he plays good defense, and is probably one of the best guys we have at turning the double play. He comes to the yard and knows how to get himself ready to play. And he's got some pop in his bat that will surprise you. Just a good ballplayer."
|Like the Red Sox's Mookie Betts, Devon Travis went from being a nobody to a legitimate prospect with his performance in 2013, hitting better than .350 in both of his stops in the minors. He didn't run as much as Betts, though, and the scouts seem to be a little more skeptical of his power. The big test for him will be the jump to Double-A this year, which -- other than the majors, of course -- is the level that most often exposes overachievers. Given his lack of pedigree, you have to remain skeptical in your assessment of Travis until he establishes some sort of track record, but if he continues down this path, he's the Tigers' second baseman of the future. And depending how quickly he takes to Double-A, that future could come sooner than later, especially if Omar Infante signs elsewhere. Travis isn't to the point where you should draft him in AL-only leagues, but he's a player to monitor in those deeper formats.
