2017 MLB Season Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

Here is the 2017 MLB season preview for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Their rotation needs to step up if they want to repeat as AL East champions.

Can Josh Donaldson win another MVP award?

The additions of Jose Reyes, R.A. Dickey and Josh Johnson didn’t pay off at all. Reyes broke his ankle and was out until almost the All-Star Break, Johnson looked like a Four-A pitcher and then Jose Bautista suffered an injury that ended his season early. Can Toronto be a playoff team if both stay healthy all season?

Can R.A. Dickey regain control of his knuckleball?

Here is the 2014 MLB season preview for the Toronto Blue Jays.
