Blue Jays tab prospect Devon Travis as starting second baseman


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.


Blue Jays send Anthony Gose to Tigers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Blue Jays have traded outfielder Anthony Gose to the Tigers for second baseman Devon Travis, according to Sportsnet.

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.

Travis is off to a slow start for Double-A Erie, batting .143 (2 for 14) with one stolen base in four games.


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."
