X-rays on Travis' hand come back negative

MLB.com

TORONTO -- Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis left Sunday's eventual 3-2 win over the Yankees after getting hit on the left hand by a Luis Severino pitch in the seventh inning. Initial X-rays came back negative.

Travis stayed in for the remainder of the inning after being checked out by team trainers, advancing to third base on a bunt and a groundout, but was removed in favor of Ryan Goins defensively in the bottom half.

"I thought I broke it," Travis said. "It was really scary. My hand was throbbing so bad, I couldn't really open it or close it -- and I definitely wasn't about to slide on it and lift myself up on it. I'm just happy it's not broken, honestly."

The pitch that hit Travis was a four-seam fastball clocked at 95.9 mph. Prior to leaving, Travis was 1-for-2 with an opposite-field single.

Avoiding something more serious is especially important for Travis, who is coming off a breakout month of May and has had his first two MLB seasons significantly shortened due to injuries. The current plan is to monitor the swelling of Travis' hand and re-evaluate on Monday.

"Staying healthy is the biggest thing," Travis said, "and that's something I've been talking about for a long time now. It's not broken, so I can smile, that's for sure."
