Travis, 28, recently had surgery to repair a small meniscus tear in the knee and will miss significant time this season.
He has dealt with knee issues in the past on both sides which has affected his playing time.
Travis missed games in both 2016 and ’17 with a bone bruise in his right knee before hamstring soreness sidelined him late last season.
He had arrived at training camp healthy and aiming to be an everyday option for new manager Charlie Montoyo.
Toronto also officially signed right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson to a one-year contract worth US $1.5 million on Monday.
