John Gibbons has declared that shelved
He was placed Thursday with a shoulder injury, which would make him eligible to come back June 5.
The injury has kept Travis out of the lineup since last Saturday. It has been nagging Travis, who saw his average dip from .368 on April 27 to .271.
With Travis going on the DL, the Blue Jays are filling his roster spot by selecting the contract of second baseman
He has not played since Saturday, but he will likely not be placed on the disabled list, according to Sportsnet. The Jays could do so and backdate the injury, but that is not expected to happen.
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.
Some slumping player can't pinpoint the day their struggles began.
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.
