After a very promising 2019 season that had hinted at the potential of the young rookie quartet Biggio-Bichette-Guerrero-Gurriel, the Toronto Blue Jays were eagerly awaited for the following year. Unfortunately the health crisis linked to Covid-19 has somewhat upset the Major League Baseball program. Despite this 2020 season reduced to 60 games which did not start until July 23 and a relocation to Buffalo, the Torontonians did not disappoint.
With in particular the acquisition of Hyun-Jin Ryu as star pitcher, Charlie Montoyo’s men have signed a record of 32 wins for 28 losses. They got 3rd place in their division. Taking advantage of a number of places in the final stages increased to 16 instead of 10, they rose to the top 8 teams in the American League. A ranking synonymous with qualifying for the playoffs.
Unfortunately, their journey will end in the first round. The Blue Jays could not do anything against the Rays (0-2) future finalists (4-2 defeats by the Dodgers in the world series).
