The Blue Jays look to salvage a 3-4 homestand as they host the White Sox for three games in a battle of cellar dwellars. This series marks the return of Melky Cabrera to Toronto who defected to the Pale Hose as a free-agent during the off-season.
The Seattle Mariners make their only visit to Toronto for a three-game weekend series. The Mariners lost two of three in Baltimore and are 18-22 on the season, eight games back of the Houston Astros in the AL West. The Blue Jays salvaged a split of their four-game set with the Los Angeles Angels to start off their 10 game homestand. The Jays are 19-24, 4-1/2 games behind the Yankees in the AL East.
Another awful road trip finds the Blue Jays needing a big homestand here to get back into the AL East race. They dropped two of three in Baltimore before pulling a no-show in Houston in a four-game set to drop their record to 17-22, dead last in the division but only five games back of the division-leading Yankees. The Angels lost in Baltimore Sunday but still took two out of three from the Orioles to stay above .500 at 19-18, 5-1/2 games behind the Astros for first place in the AL West.
The Fightin' Blue Jays and the Fightin' Orioles begin round three at Camden Yards. Toronto completed a 4-2 homestand with series victories against New York and Boston to get to .500 on the season at 16-16. The Orioles are 13-16 after losing five of six in New York, including three of four to the Yankees. Their road trip was extended to nine games after the Baltimore riots forced their series against Tampa Bay to be played at Tropicana Field instead. The O's did take two of three against Tampa as the 'home team'.
Boston makes its first visit to the Dome in 2015. The Jays are 14-15, a half-game ahead of the 13-15 Red Sox and four games behind the Yankees for first place in the American League East. Toronto is coming off a series victory against the Yankees at the Concrete Convertible.
The New York Yankees come to Toronto for a big three game series. It is early in the season but this week is setting up as a pivotal week for the Jays. Along with the Yankees, the Red Sox come to town this week and these six games could say a lot about this team. A 4-2 week, or better, will steady the ship. A 2-4 week, or worse, will raise the angst level to extra high.
The road trip from hell concludes with a four-game series in Cleveland. The Jays are 1-5 so far on this 10-game excursion after dropping two of three to Boston to fall to 10-12 on the season and guarantee a losing record in April. Like the Blue Jays, the Indians are in last place in their division with a 7-13 record in the AL Central. The Tribe have not won a series since their opening three-game set in Houston where they took two out of three. They have lost their last four three-game sets two games to one, including a series loss to Kansas City at Progressive Field.
Three games for the Jays in Boston and all three are scheduled for 6pm starts. It's an experiment by the Sawx to see if more fans stick around downtown to go to the games. Given that the Sox almost always sell out they must have been worried about early season attendance after last years poor performance. Speaking of poor performance the Jays try and right the ship after three losses in Tampa.
Usually trips to Tampa Bay don't go well for this team...
The Bluebirds and the Blackbirds face each other in Toronto for the first time in 2015. The Jays took two out of three in Baltimore during the first weekend of the season to return home with a 4-2 record. However, a 2-5 homestand has put a damper on that promising start to the season. Toronto had the day off Monday but Baltimore lost the annual Boston Marathon morning game to come away with a split of their four-game series. The Jays are 6-7 and the O's are 7-6.
The Blue Jays look to bounce back from a four-game series loss in which they managed just one win against Tampa Bay. The Braves dropped two of three at home to Miami as the Marlins gained a measure after being swept by the Braves in Florida to start the season. Atlanta is 6-3 on the season while Toronto is 5-5.
The Blue Jays return home after a 4-2 road trip that saw them take two of three from Baltimore. Homers by Dalton Pompey, Kevin Pillar and Jose Bautista and a strong performance from the bullpen rescued a shaky Drew Hutchison in a 10-7 triumph at Camden Yards Sunday afternoon. The Jays are tied with the Boston Red Sox for first place in the AL East.
The Blue Jays wrap up their first road trip of 2015 with three games
against the defending AL East champion Baltimore Orioles. The O's and
Jays are tied with Boston for top spot in the standings with 2-1
— pitching here for the
Vancouver Canadians against Everett July 11 of last year — picked up
his first Major League save in Thursday's 6-3 victory over New York at
Yankee Stadium. The 20 year-old has pitched three perfect innings over three appearances with two strikeouts and zero walks.
It's always weird to see Olympic Stadium full of people...
