The Toronto Blue Jays are a Canadian professional baseball team competing in the American League East division of Major League Baseball. An expansion franchise, the Blue Jays was founded in Toronto in 1977 and went through the usual struggles that expansion teams face, but in 1992 and 1993, the Blue Jays won back-to-back World Series titles, their only two such titles to date. After their 1993 World Series win, the Blue Jays failed to qualify for the playoffs for 21 seasons in a row, then broke that unwanted record in 2015.

They blew away the American League East division, finishing with a 93-69 (.574) record, and finishing fifth in the MLS overall, and falling only two games shy of the AL pennant.
The Blue Jays excelled in 2015 despite injuries to some of their talented players. Leftfielder Michael Saunders and Troy Tulowitzki, the latter a deadline signing, only started a combined regular season games, while Devon Travis – a sophomore second baseman – was ruled out for a month of the season with a shoulder injury that required surgery.
Fans of Toronto Blue Jay will hope their team can continue in the rich vein of form they ended 2015 in. From July 29 through to the end of the 2015 campaign, the Blue Jays went 43-18 and posted a .705 winning percentage. This translates to a 114-win pace over the course of the 162 game season, but it the loss of star starting pitcher David Price to the Boston Red Sox – he signed a seven-year $217 million contract, could hit the Blue Jays hard.
David Price Will Be Missed; Can Troy Tulowitzki Stay Healthy?
If the Toronto Blue Jays are going to challenge for top honors in 2016 they need to keep their key personnel fit and healthy. However, Troy Tulowitzki, Michael Saunders, and Devon Travis have all been plagued with injuries over the past couple of years, and this could really hurt the Blue Jays.
Losing a pitcher with the quality of David Price would hurt any MLB team, and with the New York Yankees looking decent, and the Boston Red Sox seemingly on the up and up, the Blue Jays will not have it all their own way in the regular season in 2016.
