The Blue Jays second baseman hit .304 as a rookie in 2015
This move leaves the Blue Jays with a six-man bullpen consisting of Roberto Osuna, Joe Biagini, Gavin Floyd, Jesse Chavez, Drew Storen, and Chad Girodo. With Girodo as the lone left-hander, it appears an accompanying move will follow in the near future.
Toronto now has Travis, Tulowitzki, Ryan Goins, and Darwin Barney in the middle infield. Recent waiver claim Jimmy Paredes also has experience at second base, so barring a disabled list stint, Goins could be next in line for a domotion after his difficult start at the plate.
As a rookie with the Blue Jays in 2015, Travis hit .304 eight home runs and 35 runs batted in after coming over from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Anthony Gose. Scouting reports at the time of the deal suggested that Travis had defensive limitations, but he looked strong in the field and produced a 2.3 WAR in just 62 games played
