Travis was traded from the Red Sox to the Rangers on Wednesday in exchange for left-hander Jeffrey Springs, John Blake of the team's official site reports.

The 26-year-old accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket last Thursday, but he'll now work out of the Rangers' organization. Travis was assigned to Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move after hitting .275/.362/.432 with seven home runs and five stolen bases over 68 games in the minors last season. In 59 games for Boston, Travis slashed .215/.274/.382 with six home runs, 16 RBI and two steals.
