On Deck: Toronto Blue Jays (12-5) @ New York Yankees (8-8)

Following their quick jaunt home to play three games in 28 hours against the Royals, the Blue Jays head to the Bronx for their second four-game series of the season against the Yankees.

2018 Toronto Blue Jays Opening Day Roster

Gibbons2016_01The Toronto Blue Jays finalized their 25-man Opening Day roster on Thursday, just hours ahead of the start of the new season against the New York Yankees. Here’s how they’ll stack up, and what to expect.
