Based on the statistics, the Blue Jays play best in September with a 53-30 record for a .638 winning percentage. The only month they do not have an above .500 record is May, with a 40-42 record.

In the past three seasons, the Jays have gone to the playoffs twice but have not found any postseason success. In 2022 Toronto reached the American League Wild Card series but lost 2-0 to the Seattle Mariners. It was the exact same result for Canada’s only Major League Baseball team in 2023, as the Jays finished 89-73 to grab the last AL postseason spot but lost the Wild Card series 2-0 to the Minnesota Twins.

Toronto Blue Jays Preseason Prospectus

The news coming out of spring training for the Jays has made fans a little nervous, and perhaps some backers at Ontario sports betting apps as well. Starting pitchers Kevin Gausman and Alek Manoah have been shut down because of shoulder issues. 

Sportsnet reported that the Jays cancelled Manoah’s scheduled side session today because of shoulder soreness. He is considered day-to-day. Gausman was diagnosed Monday with shoulder fatigue and his live batting practice session was cancelled. MRI exams in both situations revealed no structural concerns.

What propelled the Jays last year was the health of their starting pitching staff. It sure wasn’t their ability to deliver with runners in scoring position. And while they added free agent Justin Turner, a lot of people were underwhelmed by their offseason on that front. At Caesars Ontario Sportsbook, the Blue Jays have +2500 odds to win the World Series.

At the plate, the Jays are really counting on comeback seasons by George Springer, Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Daulton Varsho, especially.

So, a quick jump out of the gate when they start playing games for real March 28 on the road against the Tampa Bay Rays is going to be key. The Jays are looking at road series against the Rays, Houston Astros, Yankees to start, before they return home to face the Seattle Mariners April 8. That’s a tough schedule to start.

Can the Jays reach the postseason for the third consecutive year? The DraftKings Ontario Sportsbook has -140 odds on yes and +120 odds on no.
