Predicting the 2020 Blue Jays’ 26-man Opening Day Roster 2.0

The Toronto Blue Jays have just a few weeks remaining in spring training, so it is time to take another look at who might be the 26 men coming North of the border for Opening Day.

Entering this season, Toronto is a team many expect to be just under or at .500. The team will still be a young roster but this off-season they brought in some new pitchers to strengthen the rotation. The ball club’s biggest question marks on who will make the Opening Day roster is in the bullpen and outfield. So, here is our second version of what the roster may look like on March 26 when the Blue Jays take on the Boston Red Sox.
Starting Pitchers (5)
Hyun-Jin Ryu
Tanner Roark
Matt Shoemaker
Chase Anderson
Trent Thornton
From the first roster projection, nothing has changed as the first four spots were locked and Trent Thornton has only cemented his spot as the fifth starter during spring. Thornton has looked impressive, and with the likes of Ryan Borucki injured, Thornton will be on the Opening Day roster but he will have to pitch well and remain healthy to keep his spot in the rotation.
