The 2020 Toronto Blue Jays season is the 44th season of the Toronto Blue Jays franchise.

On March 12, 2020, MLB announced that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks in addition to the remainder of spring training being cancelled.[1] Four days later, it was announced that the start of the season would be pushed back indefinitely due to the recommendation made by the CDC to restrict events of more than 50 people for eight weeks.[2] On June 23, commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players will report to training camps on July 1 in order to resume spring training and prepare for a July 23 or 24 Opening Day.[3] On July 18, the Canadian government denied approval for the Blue Jays to play their home games at Rogers Centre in Toronto, since the team is scheduled to play in areas of the United States hit hard by the coronavirus.[4] The Blue Jays will play their home games at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Florida or Sahlen Field in Buffalo, New York for the 2020 season.[5]

Spring training[edit source | edit]

The Blue Jays announced they would return to Montreal to finish their spring training for the seventh consecutive year. The opponents would have been the New York Yankees.[29] However, spring training games, including the aforementioned series in Montreal, were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.[30] On June 23, MLB announced the resumption of spring training on July 1.[31]
