Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis has a bone bruise and is expected to be ready for spring training next season,

The Blue Jays announced today that an MRI revealed the bone bruise as well as a small flap of cartilage caught in Travis's right knee joint.

The team says Travis will most likely require a knee scope but will be re-evaluated when the swelling subsides.

Travis left in the fifth inning of Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in Cleveland after running to cover first base on a bunt.

His right knee had been giving him trouble previously, knocking him out of Games 2 and 3 of Toronto's A.L. Division Series with Texas.
