The lingering issue had taken a toll on Travis, who has not managed a multi-hit game since April 27. His average has fallen from .368 to .271 since then.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis traces struggles back to bad hop


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Some slumping player can't pinpoint the day their struggles began. Blue Jays scuffling second baseman Devon Travis can.

It was April 30 in Cleveland.

That's the date and place he took a wicked hop to his left collarbone. He missed one game, then played the next 14 before the bone bruise shut him down since Sunday.

Travis boasted a slash line of .342/.404/.658 with six home runs entering play that fateful day. He has since batted .185 with one tater. He has not blasted off since May 3.

"It's something that I've struggled with a lot," Travis told the National Post. "My job is to come out here and play every single day and help this team win ballgames in any way I can. I get pretty frustrated. It's probably why I sound a little bit down. I've really been praying that I just wake up and everything's feeling better."

The severe bone bruise in his collarbone is hampering his swing, which has in turn caused him to chase pitches out of the strike zone. He fanned a season-high three times on Saturday before being shut down.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"I don't think there's a silver lining today," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "The kid's good. What are you going to say, he's been doing it all year. It's not like he's on a little hot streak. He's been doing it all year. I think he's a pretty special find for us."

"At first they thought it could be cracked," manager John Gibbons said, via MLB.com. "But they checked it out and it came back OK. He's pretty sore… It caught him just right, too. The first x-ray they took, it wasn't clear enough. Then he got a CAT scan and they said he's OK."

Russell Martin moved into the cleanup spot, which is usually where Encarnacion bats. He was followed by Kevin Pillar, Michael Saunders, Dalton Pompey, Ryan Goins (who started for Travis) and Jonathan Diaz.


Devon Travis' start to career matches that of Pujols, Francoeur


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Francoeur, however, hasn't has as banner of a career. He never made an All-Star team, finished third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2005 and won one Gold Glove. He has also bounced around in his career, playing for seven MLB teams. He has a career .260/.304/.416/.720 slash line.

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."
