The Toronto Blue Jays had vi­sions of sec­ond base­man Devon Travis play­ing mi­nor league games near the end of this sea­son once he re­turned from re­hab from his right knee in­jury. But on Wed­nes­day, manager John Gib­bons said Travis’s knee flared up re­cently and those plans were scrapped. Travis re­mained in Florida when the Jays left Tampa Bay on Aug. 24. The 26-year-old has been out of ac­tion since June 4. Mean­while, Gib­bons said he won’t spec­u­late as to which play­ers will be sum­moned to the big club in the Septem­ber call-ups, but said 24-year-old out­fielder Teoscar Her­nan­dez, whom the Jays ac­quired from the Houston Astros on July 31 in the Fran­cisco Liri­ano trade, will def­i­nitely be one of them. In 24 games with triple-A Buf­falo, Her­nan­dez is hit­ting .213 with five home runs, but has come on re­cently. The 24-year-old hit .230 in 41 games with Houston last sea­son.
