The injury occurred during the 2016 ALCS, when Travis attempted to play through a bone bruise that had been bothering him down the stretch. At the time, he had been working extensively with Blue Jays trainers to stay on the field, but he exacerbated those knee issues midway through the series opener against Cleveland.
“He had surgery to have that flap of cartilage removed,” general manager Ross Atkins told reporters Friday. “He’s recovering well. He’s feeling great. We’re expecting him to have a full recovery.”
Travis hit .300/.332/.454 with 11 home runs for the Blue Jays last year. The 25-year-old underwent shoulder surgery during the 2015-16 off-season but returned in May and played in 101 games.
