Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis gets 3 hits in win over Orioles


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis had another great game at the plate in Wednesday night's 4-2 win over the Orioles. 

Travis went 3 for 4 with a home run, his fourth of the season. He recorded two RBI and scored a run of his own. In 14 games, Travis has only come away without a hit three times. He's now hitting .367/.415/.673. 

"I don't know what's happening," Travis said, via Sportsnet. "That's just a blessing because I don't know where the heck that's coming from."


Rays 2B Travis back in action Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Rays second baseman Devon Travis has hardly missed a beat with a rib ailment. After not starting Tuesday, he is back in the lineup Wednesday against Baltimore.

Travis can't be blamed for wanting to return. He owns a seven-game hitting streak in which he is 11-for-29 with two home runs, nine RBI and five runs scored.


Blue Jays' Jose Reyes leading off Tuesday, Devon Travis out


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes is batting leadoff in Tuesday's matchup against the Orioles, while second baseman Devon Travis is out of the lineup.

Reyes was diagnosed with a small rib fracture last week after feeling a jolt of pain during an at-bat Thursday. He was ruled out through the weekend but is able to return to action Tuesday; however, he'll be limited to batting from the right side against righty Bud Norris.

Travis left Sunday's game after getting hit with a pitch. He escaped serious injury after the team announced he was not dealing with a rib fracture, but he'll take a seat Tuesday. He said that the rib is bruised and sore, but he's not dealing with a pulled muscle or anything more serious, the Toronto Star reports. Ryan Goins will draw the start at second base.

The Blue Jays are favorites (-121) against the Orioles Tuesday.


Blue Jays hopeful Jose Reyes, Devon Travis will play Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is hopeful shortstop Jose Reyes (rib) and second baseman Devon Travis (rib) will be able to play Tuesday against the Orioles, according to SportsNet.

Reyes has been out since Friday with the injury and is expected to be re-evaluated before the game Tuesday. He is hitting .324 with five RBI in 37 at-bats. Travis left Sunday's game after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. The team later confirmed Travis does not have a fracture to his rib. 

He currently leads the team with a .356 batting average in 45 at-bats.


Blue Jays' Devon Travis leaves game after HBP


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis had to leave Sunday's game after getting hit in the side by a pitch in the first inning. 

Travis initially stayed in the game, but he appeared to aggravate the injury when he dove back to first base on a pickoff attempt. He was removed for pinch runner Steve Tolleson.


Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis thriving early this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis has ripped through the first two weeks of the season with a bang, hitting .333 in 45 at-bats. Manager John Gibbons loves the way the rookie is playing this season.

"He's got the complete game, he really does," Gibbons said. "He was such a good hitter in spring training I thought to myself: 'This kid will hit some home runs in his career.' But he's shown a lot more power than I expected."

Gibbons is handling things at the plate like an old veteran, according to Gibbons.

"One thing he's got that's advanced for a young guy is he's got a great approach at the plate, he doesn't chase out of the zone much. He's got the ability to foul off tough pitches to stay alive and a lot of guys can't do that. And he handles breaking balls, at least fouls them off, and that's a big part of it. He stays alive and if they make a mistake he doesn't miss it. He's been very productive."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Blue Jays rookie second baseman Devon Travis moved from the bottom of the lineup to the top of the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves, with shortstop Jose Reyes sidelined due to injury. Travis had hit ninth in the first 10 games of the season.

The 24-year-old Travis is batting .371 (13 for 35) with two home runs, four doubles, seven runs and 10 RBI. He also has two walks and seven strikeouts.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Travis was the only member of the Blue Jays to record more than one hit as he went 2 for 4 for the night. His double, the third he's recorded this year, scored Russell Martin. Travis is now hitting .343 for the season. 


Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis rips second homer of 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis went 3 for 4 at the plate in Toronto's 12-7 win over the Rays Wednesday. Travis shook off an early strikeout to rip an RBI double in the third inning, driving home Kevin Pillar.

Travis then ripped a 3-2 pitch from Jeff Beliveau to left field for a solo home run in the fifth. Travis is now hitting .323 with six RBI to begin the season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Blue Jays rookie second baseman Devon Travis had hitless games on Saturday and Sunday, slowing the red hot start to his career. 

Travis homered in his first Major League game and had hits in three of his first six at bats. 

One week into the season, Travis is hitting .250 with three RBI. A scoring decision on Sunday cost him a bases-clearing double when his line drive off the right fielder's glove was ruled an error. 


Blue Jays' Devon Travis homers in MLB debut


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis had an impressive MLB debut on Opening Day. Travis became the first Blue Jays rookie to start a season at second base since Mike Sharperson in 1987. 

Travis walked in his first plate appearance, and, in the seventh inning, he hit a solo home run, becoming the first Blue Jay since J.P. Arencibia to home for his first Major League hit. 

Travis finished one for two with two walks and two runs scored.

"I don't think you could write the script any different," Travis said, per MLB.com. "Having Opening Day in New York City, the Yankees, so much history with this organization. Dream come true. I'm just so thankful for everything, I don't really think anything has hit me yet. It was just an awesome day."

"He has a great eye, very disciplined, small strike zone," manager John Gibbons said. "He's a little guy., but he did that all spring, he waited out and got pitches to hit all spring. That's where he did his damage, and that's just the way he plays. That's a bonus."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Blue Jays finalized their opening day roster, adding three players to their 40-man, in order to break camp with them on the team.

Non-roster invitees who made the team are: RHP Miguel Castro, who went 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA, RHP Roberto Osuna, who was 2-0, 2.19, and infielder Devon Travis, who hit .359.

To make room, the Jays placed pitcher Marcus Stroman on the 60-day disabled list and designated pitcher Juan Pablo Oramas for assignment.

Outfielder Michael Saunders (knee) and infielder Maicer Izturis (groin) were placed on the 15-day DL.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced Tuesday prospect Devon Travis has won the starting job at second base, beating out Ryan Goins and Steve Tolleson.

Travis has had a pretty outstanding spring at the plate. He is batting .352 (19 for 54) with six doubles, six RBI, four walks and five runs in 23 games.

Travis, who was acquired in a November trade with Detroit, is considered Toronto's fifth-best prospect by Baseball America. Travis has a career .323/.388/.487/.876 slash line over three seasons in the minors.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman first reported March 25 that Travis would win the starting job at second base.


Devon Travis expected to win starting second base job for Blue Jays


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) While the Blue Jays have yet to make an announcement, Devon Travis will win the starting job at second base over Ryan Goins and Steve Tolleson, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Travis, who was acquired in a November trade with Detroit, is doing well offensively this spring. He is batting .400 (16 for 40) with six doubles, six RBI, three walks, four runs and five strikeouts in 16 spring games.

He is considered Toronto's fifth-best prospect by Baseball America. Travis has a career .323/.388/.487/.876 slash line over three seasons in the minors.


Blue Jays may not decide on 2B starter until end of spring training


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) The Blue Jays have several unsettled roles on the roster and some, like the battle to start at second base, won't be decided until the end of spring training, MLB.com reports.

"There are some things we have a pretty good idea of right now," manager John Gibbons said Tuesday. "But yeah, for the most part, to be fair to some of the guys still involved and things like that, there will be a lot of things we won't announce until the end."

At second base, prospect Devon Travis has battled Ryan Goins and Steve Tolleson to start, but the team may favor Tolleson in a close battle with the infielder out of minor-league options.

"You like to keep guys around if you can," said Gibbons, speaking generally about options. "If two guys are equal and one is out of options, there's a good chance he's gonna stay. But that's not the overriding factor. You always weigh it, because everyone runs into depth problems."

Travis has impressed this spring, going 14 for 38 at the plate and smacking six doubles this spring.

"Every scout that's watched him play, and the guys in the Detroit organization that we've talked to, they all say this kid can flat-out play," Gibbons said. "You just watch. He's getting great results right now, but you just watch him in the box, this kid's got a great swing, a short stroke. He's got an idea up there. He's not just swinging, just letting it fly. You watch his defence, he looks great there, too. You've got to weigh all that."


Blue Jays' Gibbons: Devon Travis 'getting better and better'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Blue Jays second base prospect Devon Travis has exceeded expectations in camp and could be in the mix at the big-league level soon even if he doesn't win the second-base job heading into the regular season, MLB.com reports.

"He's settled in," manager John Gibbons said. "He came in with a great reputation and the kid can hit. Like any young guy, first camp here, I thought he was pressing a little bit early. But he's having some success, he's settling in, he's getting some confidence here and he's getting some games under his belt. So I think he looks great. He's getting better and better. He's got a chance to be a real good one."

Travis is 9 for 30 with two doubles and two walks in 12 spring appearances. However, he started the spring 0 for 10 in his first four games before hitting his stride. He's also impressed with his defense.

"That's the one area they thought. 'You know he's a great hitter but he needs some work defensively,'" Gibbons said. "I disagree. I think he's been great down there."


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.

Gose ranked as the 39th best prospect in the game in 2012 according to Baseball America, but hasn't developed as expected in the majors. Gose hit .234/.301/.332 over 552 career at-bats in the majors. The 23-year-old Travis hit .298/.358/.460 in Double-A last year. 


Oblique injury sends Devon Travis to DL in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) 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.

Justin Miller among handful of Tigers sent down


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) 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
(4/29/2013) 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."
