Blue Jays' Devon Travis: Could make Grapefruit League debut this week
Travis (knee) is hopeful to make his Grapefruit League debut later this week, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports.
The Blue Jays have been easing Travis back into action following offseason knee surgery, as the 26-year-old has been playing in minor-league games for the past week. He's set to play in games Monday and Wednesday on the backfields, and if those sessions go well, manager John Gibbons could insert Travis into the Grapefruit League lineup at some point over the weekend. Injuries have been a hindrance to Travis throughout his brief time in the majors, but he's flashed plenty of offensive upside when he's been healthy enough to take the field, as evidenced by his career 119 wRC+ mark.
