Blue Jays granted exemption to train in Toronto

Blue Jays granted exemption to train in Toronto

"In collaboration with public health agencies, the Blue Jays have established comprehensive protocols to ensure the highest standards of health and safety are met prior to and during travel, and to create a cohort quarantine environment at Rogers Centre and the adjoining hotel".

Planning for a regular season in Toronto began around the same time the club began working through a plan for spring training in their home city, with a similar intent: to protect the public in every way possible, Shapiro said. "We'll look to do that in the next week". The team plans to mobilize quickly so that it can begin full-team workouts at the downtown Toronto stadium by Monday.

Players and club personnel are now completing intake screening in Dunedin, Florida, where they will board private charter flights to Toronto this weekend. The NHL is selecting hub cities - most likely two - where all the teams will play.

The 28-year-old Valera hit.234 in 17 games last season for the New York Yankees and the Blue Jays, who claimed him off waivers on September 20.

Shapiro said Jays players were part of the process of deciding where to hold camp and understand there will be penalties in place if anyone were to violate the rules of the modified quarantine. That includes boarding a private, sterilized bus at Pearson, proceeding directly to the Marriott at the Rogers Centre and not leaving the building until the completion of a three-game series. Most clubs start practice Friday.

Just how easy it will be to pin in millionaire athletes looking to go out on the town remains to be seen, but Shapiro seems confident it can work. "They felt better about the facility here, they felt better about being here, they feel better about the transition into the season and better about our competitive chances to remain healthy if we were able to train here", Shapiro said. Obviously it's more limiting because a visiting team that comes in will not be allowed to leave the confines.

The players will be quarantining at the hotel attached to the stadium.

ICMR to launch 1st indigenous Covid vax by Aug 15
Few, however, have been able to start their large-scale Phase 3 trials. This is the second Indian vaccine to get DCGI nod for human trials.

Major League Baseball and its players' association last month agreed to a shortened 60-game season. Instead, the team will prepare for the 60-game campaign with intrasquad contests.

Unlike the NHL and National Basketball Association, which are planning to play in either hub cities or one large complex once their seasons resume, MLB teams will be travelling for road games against division rivals and teams in the corresponding division of their opposite league. Major League Baseball did not require teams to be at their home stadium for that portion of the reboot testing.

The Toronto Blue Jays are officially headed north.

Dr. Andrew Morris, a professor of infectious diseases at the University of Toronto and the medical director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at Sinai-University Health Network, said the government and Major League Baseball will face significant blow back from Canada's medical community if they approve a plan that allows players to go back and forth between the US and Canada to play regular season games. Multiple players and staff members tested positive last week. There will be five mounds at their disposal - the main one on the diamond plus two in each bullpen - as well as home and visitors indoor batting cages.

At the ballpark, Toronto will use four different dressing rooms in order to social distance. It is unclear at this point where the Blue Jays will be playing home games.

So far, the team has been training in Florida - one of the worst-hit states in the U.S.
