by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Blue Jays may not decide on 2B starter until end of spring training
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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

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.
