Time to play ball: Blue Jays kick off season in Baltimore

CityNews | posted Monday, Apr 3rd, 2017

The wait is finally over. The Toronto Blue Jays kick off their regular season against the Orioles in Baltimore on Monday.

Right-hander Marco Estrada will the get the start. The game gets underway at 3:05 p.m.

As excited as Jays fans are about the new season, the team appears determined to get down to business.

Slugger Josh Donaldson tweeted “Eyes on the prize, so the vision doesn’t get blurry.”

Russell Martin said the mood in the clubhouse is good.

“We know it’s a long road ahead. We’re just going to try to take it day by day. I know it’s a cliche. We’re in a good spot right now and hopefully we can just keep our mindset and keep moving forward the right way,” Martin said.

But the starting rotation will shoulder a heavy load to start the season after Roberto Osuna was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to back issues. The Blue Jays also released outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. over the weekend.

The first home game of the season is April 11 against the Milwaukee Brewers. The first pitch flies at 7:07 p.m.
