It turns out the action on the court should be the main talking point in the upcoming three-game series involving the New York Yankees 16-6 and Toronto Blue Jays 15-8 which kicks off in Canada on Monday night.
According to MLB Network Insider David Adler of the Official MLB Site Jon Heyman reports that the entire Yankees team is now considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and has traveled to Toronto for the series. It was learned in March that MLB players would not be exempt from following Canadian government regulations and, therefore, would have to be 14 days after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 14 days after receiving the single dose Johnson & Johnson to enter the country for road games in Toronto.
Yankees slugger Aaron Judge rolled his eyes in March when he refused to confirm his coronavirus vaccination status. According to NJ Advance Media’s Mike Rosenstein for NJ.com, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said two weeks ago that he expected his roster “to be in good stead” regarding the club’s first series. in Canada this season.
The Yankees did not address player vaccination statuses this spring.
The Yankees and Blue Jays shared a four-game series in the Bronx last month. On Sunday, New York beat the Kansas City Royals 6-4 to claim a ninth straight victory.
