With week 11 of the MLB season coming to a close, former Florida State players continue to perform exceptionally well in the majors. Devon Travis is finally back from an injury that took him away from game action for just over a month, which puts the former Noles back at full strength. Here's a full rundown of the past week.
Devon Travis 2B Toronto Blue Jays:
Travis returned to the Toronto lineup on Friday for the first time since May 17th when he went on the disabled list. In his two games back, Travis has gone 1-7 with a run. Although his bat may be a little slow coming back, his defense is as sharp as it has been all season.
