Travis (knee) is not expected to make it back onto the field this season, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. Travis suffered a setback in his rehab in late August and will likely remain on the disabled list for the rest of the season while recovering from a surgical procedure that cleaned up the cartilage in his knee. Moving forward, there should be no concern for his health going into the 2018 season.
Travis (knee) had a setback in his rehab and is unlikely to return this season, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. The team has not said specifically that he will not return this season, but considering he's being backed off his rehab and has not played in a game since June 4, it certainly seems unlikely that he will make it back in 2017. Travis has typically been oft-injured yet good when healthy, and this year he wasn't even good when healthy. He has played a total of 213 games in three MLB seasons.
Travis (knee) fielded some grounders at second base Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. It's yet another positive step forward for Travis, who had resumed hitting and running a few days earlier. The Blue Jays are optimistic that Travis will be able to return from the 60-day disabled list by the end of August, but an official timetable won't be fleshed out until he's cleared to begin a rehab assignment in the minors.
Travis (knee) has begun hitting in the batting cage and is nearing the start of a running program, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. Travis' lengthy rehab is starting to show signs of significant progress as reports are suggesting he could be back with the Blue Jays by late August after some initial fears that he'd be lost for the season. How Travis' knee responds to the increased activity will dictate how soon the Blue Jays will be able to deploy him on a rehab assignment. Look for more updates on Travis as his running program gets underway.
Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Tuesday that he's hopeful Travis (knee) will return from the 60-day disabled list before the end of August, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Travis has already been able to do some light fielding work, but the Blue Jays haven't yet carved out a timeline for him to resume a running program. Given Atkins' comments, Travis may ramp up his activity in the coming days before potentially starting up a rehab assignment a few weeks later. With Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) likely out for the season, the Blue Jays will have to get by with Darwin Barney, Ryan Goins and Rob Refsnyder at the middle-infield spots before Travis' eventual return helps provide some relief.
