American League Power Rankings: Preseason Edition

6 of 15

(0-0). Previous: N/Ath. Toronto Blue Jays. 6. team. 39. The Toronto Blue Jays had a splashy trade deadline last year, fueling a furious run into September that produced an American League East division title, and a run all the way to the ALCS before they were ousted by the eventual World Series Champion Kansas City Royals. <strong>2016 Outlook: </strong>The Blue Jays made a lot of noise last July at the Major League Baseball trade deadline, and it fueled a deep playoff run for them. This winter however they had an offseason that could be considered anything but productive. Losing their top starting pitcher (David Price), a solid veteran starter (Mark Buehrle), and they’re back-up catcher Dioner Navarro hurts them tremendously. The acquisition of Drew Storen is a nice piece in the back end of the bullpen, but that is the only key acquisition that they made this winter. The Blue Jays should definitely regress in 2016, that is unless they make another flurry of moves near the deadline again this season.
