Blue Jays Players Told They Could Face Jail Time, $750K Fines for Breaking Quarantine

They clearly aren't fooling around in Toronto when it comes to keeping the Blue Jays sequestered.

The Jays have gotten permission from the Canadian government to hold their training camp at Rogers Centre with the understanding that the players stay at the adjoining hotel when not working out.

But according to former Red Sox Travis Shaw, who now plays for the Blue Jays, the agreement to be confined to just the field and hotel wasn't supposed to extend into the regular season, which is slated to kick off July 24.

The Blue Jays, who are slated to play two exhibition games in Boston on July 21 and 22, currently have 46 players in their camp with 12 others remaining in Dunedin, Fla. after one tested positive for COVID-19. The players in Florida must come through with two negative tests before joining their teammates in Canada.
