Toronto Blue Jays Starting Lineup 12/3/20 Blue Jays Lineup

32-28, 3rd in AL East

green-check Confirmed Conf

TOR 2 @ TB 8

Final

Updated:

The Blue Jays are in the middle of a youth movement. They pulled a pitcher from the Dodgers to help solidify their staff, but pitching still looks like it will be a glaring weakness. The backend of the rotation is manned by an old arm and a consistent sense of mediocrity. How well the Blue Jays hit the ball will go a long way to helping them beat the odds. However, the numbers seem to lean to them having a problem breaking .500 in 2020. As the core of their hitters continues to mature, the future does look bright. But, the top four in the projected Blue Jay batting order has five years of major league experience collectively.

They will have problems against strong pitching, at least for the foreseeable future. Don't sleep on the Blue Jays, but the AL East may be too strong for them to be more than a problem team while their young players mature.

Toronto Blue Jays FAQ

Toronto is a very exciting team, given they are filled with former big leaguer's sons. You have Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Cavan Biggio, and Bo Bichette as the names there. All are top prospects and have finally locked in full-time roles with the club. All three will be hitting at the top of the order. The rest of the lineup isn't as exciting. However, they do have Lourdes Gurriel, who is a strong bat in the middle of the order. Toronto will rotate a couple of young catchers who are looking to battle it out for a full-time role. Rowdy Tellez is a low contact bat but does have big power. He will be a full-time DH this season. Guerrero will take over at first base for 2020, and that might be a move they make long term.
