Canada open to MLB in Toronto but MLB has not submitted plan

However, MLB on Fox reporter Ken Rosenthal reported on Wednesday night that the Major League Baseball Players Association is advising agents that the Jays are asking the Canadian government to play the entire home portion of their season in Toronto.

A number of Toronto Blue Jays players and staff have tested positive for COVID-19, TSN has confirmed.

The players weren't named in Davidi's report, though he said that the cases were related to the Blue Jays' Spring Training facility in Dunedin shutting down last week.

Under such a scenario, the Blue Jays would potentially use Sahlen Field in Buffalo, home to the triple-A affiliate Bisons, as the Alternate Training Site for players not on the active roster required under Major League Baseball's 2020 Operations Manual.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not officially announced the positive cases.
