Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis went on the disabled list last Tuesday with a bone bruise in his right knee. He underwent surgery to clean up cartilage in that knee, Blue Jays broadcaster Mike Wilner reports. Wilner says “it’ll be a while” before Travis returns.

Travis, 26, hit .259/.291/.438 with five home runs and 24 RBI in 197 plate appearances this season.

Darwin Barney and Ryan Goins will handle second base while Travis recovers from surgery.
