    The 2015 Toronto Blue Jays season is the 39th season of interleague play for the franchise, and the 26th full season of play (27th overall) at Rogers Centre.

    Off–season

    The Toronto Blue Jays acquired Marco Estrada,[1] Devon Travis,[2] Josh Donaldson,[3] and Michael Saunders[4] via trades. The Estrada trade was a one-for-one swap of Estrada and Adam Lind, who went to Milwaukee Brewers[1] after the Blue jays exercised the option on his contract.[5] In addition, both the Travis and Saunders trades were single-player deals. Travis came to Toronto for Anthony Gose, who went to the Detroit Tigers,[2] and Saunders was exchanged for J. A. Happ, who was dealt to the Seattle Mariners.[4] Toronto acquired Donaldson in a five–player trade, sending Brett Lawrie, Kendall Graveman, Sean Nolin, and Franklin Barreto to Oakland Athletics.[3] Barreto played for the Vancouver Canadians in Single A in 2014,[6] while Graveman and Nolin were September additions to the Blue Jays' roster.[7] Toronto spoke to Arizona Diamondbacks about Wade Miley and Mark Trumbo.[8] However, the trade never took place.[8] Toronto wanted Trumbo to trade for Saunders.[8]

    In the free agent market, Toronto signed Russell Martin to a five–year contract,[9] non-tendered John Mayberry, Jr.,[10] and signed Jeff Francis,[11] Ezequiel Carrera,[12] Wilton López,[13] Caleb Gindl,[13] Jake Fox,[13] Daric Barton,[14] and Andrew Albers[15] to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training. Toronto offered Melky Cabrera a $15.3 million qualifying offer which Cabrera subsequently declined.[16] Cabrera eventually signed with the Chicago White Sox on December 14, 2014 pending a medical[17] which he passed the following day.[18] Toronto was compensated with a draft pick at the end of the first round.[19] On December 16, Toronto signed Daric Barton to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.[14] Then Brandon Morrow signed with the San Diego Padres on December 16, 2014.[20]

    Justin Smoak was claimed off waivers by Toronto from the Seattle Mariners.[21] He was non-tendered by Toronto,[10] but later signed to a one–year contract.[22] Toronto also claimed Andy Dirks.[11] However, Toronto non–tendered Dirks.[10] Chris Colabello,[23] Juan Oramas,[15] Scott Barnes,[24] and Preston Guilmet[24] were claimed off waivers. Juan Francisco was claimed off waivers by the Boston Red Sox.[25]

    Toronto hitting coach Kevin Seitzer left Toronto to become hitting coach of the Atlanta Braves.[26] Brook Jacoby took over as hitting coach.[27] Toronto's Bullpen coach Bob Stanley was re–assigned to the minor leagues.[28] Dane Johnson replaced Stanley as bullpen coach.[29] Eric Owens became Toronto's first ever assistant hitting coach.[29]

    The Blue Jays avoided arbitration with Brett Cecil, Michael Saunders, and Marco Estrada. The trio signed one-year contracts worth $2.475 million, $2.875 million, and $3.9 million respectively.[30] However, the Blue Jays failed to avoid arbitration with Josh Donaldson and Danny Valencia.[30]

    Daniel Norris had surgery to remove "bone spurs and loose bodies" from his left elbow.[31]

    In January, the Blue Jays were in extended discussions with the Baltimore Orioles regarding general manager Dan Duquette. The organization wanted to replace Paul Beeston with Duquette, though Duquette was under contract until the end of the 2018 season. Discussions ended when it was reported that Baltimore was seeking a compensation package of 3 first-round selections (Jeff Hoffman, Max Pentecost, and Mitch Nay).[32]

    In February, the Blue Jays went to salary arbitration with Danny Valencia and Josh Donaldson, the first two cases since the 1997 season. On February 5, Valencia won his arbitration case and was awarded $1.675 million for the 2015 season. Toronto had offered him $1.25 million.[33] A week later, Toronto won the arbitration case with Donaldson, agreeing to pay him $4.3 million. Donaldson had been seeking $5.75 million.[34]

    Spring training

    Prior to the official start of spring training, Michael Saunders tore the meniscus in his left knee on February 26 and was initially expected to go on the disabled list until the All-Star break.[47] After undergoing surgery to remove his meniscus his injury outlook improved to between 5 and 6 weeks out of the lineup.[48] On March 10, Marcus Stroman suffered a torn ACL while practising fielding bunts, and was ruled out for the entire 2015 season.[49] Attending spring training for the first time, both Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro impressed Blue Jays management with their abilities, and both earned positions in the bullpen on the Opening Day roster.[50] The team returned to Montreal's Olympic Stadium on April 3 and April 4, 2015, to face the Cincinnati Reds.[51] The Blue Jays would lose the first game 2–0,[52] but win the finale 9–1.[53] In Grapefruit League play Toronto finished with a 19–13 record.

    Devon Travis was named the American League Rookie of the Month for his performance in April.

    The Blue Jays played against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Opening Day and won, 6–1.[55] Toronto scored five runs in the third inning.[56] Prospects Devon Travis and Miguel Castro made their MLB debuts,[57] with Travis recording his first career hit, a solo home run.[55] Drew Hutchison, who became the youngest opening day starter in Blue Jays history,[57] pitched six innings giving up three hits, including a solo home run to Brett Gardner.[56] Castro got the final four outs to close out the game.[56] With the win, the Blue Jays opening day record improved to 20–19.[58] After an off-day, Toronto suffered a 4–3 loss to New York. Entering the 8th inning with a 3–1 lead, Aaron Loup put all three batters he faced on base, before Brett Cecil entered the game and allowed all three to score.[59] Due to his poor performance, Cecil was temporarily moved out of the closer role, and was replaced by Miguel Castro.[60] In the series finale, prospect Daniel Norris earned his first MLB win,[61] while Castro closed out the game for his first MLB save[62] as the Blue Jays won 6–3.[60] Toronto got five singles in the second inning to get four runs.[61] Toronto won the series 2–1.[60]

    Travelling to Camden Yards for the first time in 2015, Mark Buehrle won his 200th career game as Toronto defeated Baltimore 12–5.[63] Toronto scored four runs in the top of the first inning[63][64] and another five runs in the fourth inning.[63] José Bautista got his first three hits of the season and left in the bottom of the sixth inning as the result of minor cramping in his calves.[63] Aaron Sanchez, another of Toronto's top prospects, made his first career MLB start against Ubaldo Jimenez the following night, but would last just 313 innings and yield 3 earned runs. The Blue Jays would lose the game 7–1.[65] Toronto would win the rubber match 10–7, with Kevin Pillar, Dalton Pompey, and Jose Bautista each hitting their first home runs of the season.[66]

    Holding a 4–2 record, the Blue Jays played at home for the first time in 2015 against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 13. R.A. Dickey would get the start in his third home opener, and yield 2 runs on back-to-back bases-loaded walks. Toronto would go on to lose 2–1, their fourth consecutive loss in a home opener.[67] After a 3–2 loss the following night, the Blue Jays won their first home game of the season, defeating the Rays 12–7 on Jackie Robinson Day.[68] Toronto would lose the series finale, 4–2. Jose Reyes left the game in the first inning with an oblique strain, and was expected to miss at least 3 games.[69] In their first interleague series of the season, the Blue Jays took on the Atlanta Braves in Toronto. Despite hitting 5 home runs, including the first 2 of the season by Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin, Toronto would lose the first game 8–7.[70] In the second game, Miguel Castro would take his first blown save of the season, yielding a ninth inning solo home run to former Blue Jay Kelly Johnson that tied the game at 5–5. In the tenth inning, Josh Donaldson hit a walk-off home run to give Toronto the win, 6–5.[71] The Blue Jays would lose the final game of the series, 5–2. Devon Travis left the game in the first inning after being hit by a pitch near his ribcage. X-rays were negative for a fracture, and he was considered day to day.[72][73]

    After an off day, the Blue Jays played against the Orioles at home. Toronto would win the first game of the series, 13–6. Tensions nearly boiled over when Jason Garcia threw behind Jose Bautista, and three pitches later, Bautista hit a home run, watching it all the way and slowly rounding the bases. Between innings Bautista and Adam Jones exchanged words, and after the game Jones claimed that Garcia's pitch was unintentional. Bautista cited the previous series against Baltimore, in which reliever Darren O'Day threw behind him and he would hit a home run off O'Day in the same at-bat.[74] Bautista would miss the following game with a right shoulder strain. Devon Travis returned to the lineup and hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the fifth inning to lead Toronto to a 4–2 victory.[75] The Blue Jays would complete their first sweep of the season, beating Baltimore 7–6 on April 23. Drew Hutchison pitched 8 innings, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning, and became the first Toronto starter to go 8 innings in the 2015 season.

    Beginning a 10-game road trip, the Blue Jays travelled to Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay to take on the Rays and were swept, losing 12–3,[76] 4–2,[77] and 5–1 in the three-game set.[78] Daniel Norris, who started the second game of the series, pitched the longest MLB game of his career, and appeared to overcome what he had described as a "dead arm" phase.[79] Jose Bautista did not appear in any of the games due to his shoulder strain.[80] Bautista returned to the lineup as the designated hitter when the Blue Jays opened a 3-game set at Fenway Park in Boston. Toronto lost the first game of the series, 6–5, extending their losing streak to 4.[81] After the game, Jose Reyes was placed on the disabled list with a rib injury.[82] Toronto would snap their losing streak the following night, defeating the Red Sox 11–8.[83] In the finale, Toronto lost 4–1. The Blue Jays then travelled to Cleveland, and won their last April game 5–1, ending the month with an 11–12 record.[84]

    May

    File:Josh Donaldson.jpg
    Josh Donaldson hit 10 home runs in May, including 6 in the final week of the month to win the American League Player of the Week award.

    Toronto lost the first game of May by a score of 9–4. Before the game, top prospect Daniel Norris was optioned back to Triple-A Buffalo, and Marco Estrada was announced as his replacement in the starting rotation. Canadian pitcher Andrew Albers was added to the 40-man roster after Maicer Izturis was moved to the 60-day disabled list.[85] After the game, Albers was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo along with Dalton Pompey.[86] Pitcher Scott Copeland and outfielder Ezequiel Carrera were called up to replace Albers and Pompey. The Blue Jays would defeat reigning Cy Young winner Corey Kluber the following day, by a score of 11–4. In the final game of the series, the Blue Jays held a 6–1 lead but would end up losing 10–7. Devon Travis hit the first grand slam of his career, increasing his season total to 7 as well as bringing his RBI total to 23, both of which led the team to that point.[87] Following the loss, the Blue Jays demoted Miguel Castro and Scott Copeland, and recalled Chad Jenkins and Steve Delabar from Buffalo to replace them.[88]

    Returning home after a disappointing 3–7 road trip, the Blue Jays took on the first-place Yankees. R.A. Dickey earned his first win of the season as the Blue Jays came from behind late to win 3–1.[89] In the second game, Marco Estrada made his first start for Toronto, but the team was shut down by Yankees starter Michael Pineda, losing 6–3.[90] In the rubber match, Mark Buehrle and the Blue Jays defeated the Yankees, 5–1. Buehrle raised his career record against the Yankees to 2–14, winning for the first time since 2004.[91] After an off-day, the Blue Jays played the Red Sox at home for the first time this season. Aaron Sanchez recorded his first career quality start as the Blue Jays won the first game, 7–0. The win was their first shutout of the season, as well as the 3,000th win in franchise history.[92] In the second game of the series, Drew Hutchison earned his third win of the season as Toronto defeated Boston 7–1.[93] Toronto would lose the final game of their homestand, 6–3.

    The Blue Jays began a 7-game road trip in Baltimore on May 11. The game played that night was the first to be played in Baltimore following the empty-stadium game played on April 29, due to the 2015 Baltimore Riots. Toronto would lose, 5–2.[94] In the second game, Toronto would come from behind 2–0 to win 10–2, helped by a two-home run night from Edwin Encarnacion.[95] Toronto lost the rubber match, 6–1, and did not record an extra-base hit for the first time in the 2015 season. The loss also broke a 31-game streak with at least 1 double.[96] The Blue Jays then travelled to Houston, taking on the AL West-leading Astros. Toronto was swept by Houston, losing 6–4, 8–4, 6–5, and 4–2.[97] Following their third loss to Houston, Josh Donaldson called out his teammates for their poor play, stating "this isn't the 'try' league, this is the 'get it done' league. And you know, eventually they're gonna find people who are going to get it done."[98]

    Toronto opened a 10-game homestand against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on May 18. Roberto Osuna earned his first career win in the Blue Jays 10–6 victory.[99] The Blue Jays would get strong starting pitching but lose the next two games in the series, each by a single run.[100][101] In the final game, R.A. Dickey pitched his first complete game victory at home as a Blue Jay, winning 8–4.[102] The Seattle Mariners then came to Toronto for a 3 game set. The Blue Jays pitching continued to improve, but their offence was shut down by Felix Hernandez and James Paxton in the first two games, losing 4–3 and 3–2.[103][104] Toronto would win the final game of the series, 8–2, aided by another strong pitching performance by Aaron Sanchez.[105] Closing the homestand, the Blue Jays took on the Chicago White Sox. Drew Hutchison pitched his second career complete game shutout in the first game of the series, winning 6–0.[106] In the second game, the Blue Jays received excellent offensive performances from Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson, winning 10–9. Bautista had 3 doubles and 5 RBI, while Donaldson went 4–4 with 5 runs scored and two home runs, one of which was a walk-off, 3-run home run.[107] The Jays would lose the finale of the series 5–3 in the tenth inning. Josh Donaldson hit a ninth inning home run to tie the game and send it to extras, bringing him to three straight games with at least one home run.[108]

    Toronto would travel to Minnesota to close out the month of May by taking on the first-place Twins. In the first game of the series, Mark Buehrle allowed 4 runs in the first inning, but after that faced the minimum amount of batters in pitching a complete game. Josh Donaldson hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning, his fourth straight game with a home run. Chris Colabello, making his first start against his former team, hit a go ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning to help defeat the Twins 6–4.[109] Toronto would lose the final two games of the month, each by a single run, bringing their record in one-run games to a dismal 3–12.[110]

    June

    The Blue Jays opened the month of June with a 3 game series against the Washington Nationals. The first game of the series was rained out and rescheduled as a doubleheader for the following day. In the first game of the series, Toronto was shutout for the first time in the 2015 season, losing 2–0.[111] The team would rebound from their shutout and defeat the Nationals 7–3 in the second game, aided by Kevin Pillar's first career multi-home run game.[112]
