Travis rejected his outright assignment and became a free agent Thursday. Travis will enter free agency in the midst of a recent decline in production, but he could still get a chance with a team due to his age and glimpses of his abilities in the past. Last season, Travis hit .232/.275/.381 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI.
Travis was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Should Travis elect to reject his minor-league assignment, he'll become a free agent. Over 103 games this year, he hit .232 with 11 homers, 44 RBI and three stolen bases.
Travis (knee) was ruled out for the season Tuesday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports. Travis' odds of returning before the end of the year had long seemed slim, and he'll now officially shift his focus to next season. The second baseman has played in just 153 major-league games since the start of 2017.
Travis (knee) isn't expected to return from the 60-day injured list this season, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports. According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca, Travis has been working back from left knee surgery at the Blue Jays' spring training facility in Florida, but as of two weeks ago, the second baseman had yet to resume baseball activities. No news regarding Travis' workouts has surfaced since that time, and with less than two months left in the season, the 28-year-old has probably already run out of time to make it back to the big club even if he accelerates his rehab program soon. Travis remains arbitration-eligible for the next two seasons, but given his checkered health history and downward-trending performance since his rookie campaign, he could be a non-tender candidate this winter.
Travis (knee) has resumed light baseball activities, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports. It's not exactly clear what type of work Travis has been able to get in, but he has apparently not experienced any issues.
