The Toronto Blue Jays announced Thursday that rookie infielder Devon Travis has been shut down for the season.

Travis hasn't appeared in a game since July 28 and will have "exploratory surgery" on his shoulder to determine what exactly is the issue.

Prior to his injury, Travis looked to be a Rookie of the Year candidate, hitting .304 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 62 games for the Jays.
