The 2022 Toronto Blue Jays season is the 46th season of the Toronto Blue Jays franchise, and the Blue Jays’ 31st full season (33rd overall) at Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays will be managed by Charlie Montoyo in his fourth year as Blue Jays manager.

On December 2, 2021, Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred announced a lockout of players, following expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA). On March 10, 2022, the MLB and MLBPA agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, thus ending the lockout. Opening Day was rescheduled for April 7, one week later than the original March 31 date, affecting two series for each team.[1]

Although MLB previously announced that any cancelled games due to the lockout would not be rescheduled, the agreement provides for a complete 162-game season. The three home games against the Tampa Bay Rays were rescheduled to be played in the Rays' two other visits, creating two five-game series, while the series at Baltimore was added to the end of the season.[2]

Previous season

The Blue Jays finished the 2021 Major League Baseball season with a 91–71 record, which placed them fourth in the American League East division.

Lockout

Main article: 2021–22 Major League Baseball lockout

The expiration of the league's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Major League Baseball Players Association occurred on December 1, 2021 with no new agreement in place.[3] As a result, the team owners voted unanimously to lockout the players stopping all free agency and trades.[4][5]

The parties came to an agreement on a new CBA on March 10, 2022.[6]

Rule changes

Pursuant to the new CBA, several new rules were instituted for the 2022 season. The National League will adopt the designated hitter full-time, a draft lottery will be implemented, the postseason will expand from ten teams to twelve, and advertising patches will appear on player uniforms and helmets for the first time.[7][8]

April

Home and season opener against the Texas Rangers on April 8

The Blue Jays opened the 2022 season at home against the Texas Rangers. After falling behind 7–0 in the fourth inning, Toronto launched the largest comeback victory on Opening Day in 72 years, winning 10–8.[9] The Blue Jays would take the second game, 4–3, before losing the final game of the series, 12–6.[10][11] The team then began its first road series of the season, taking on the New York Yankees in the Bronx. The Blue Jays won the first game of the four-game set, 3–0, and Jordan Romano earned his 26th consecutive save, breaking Tom Henke's franchise record.[12] After dropping the second game, 4–0, the Jays took the third game 6–4, aided largely by three home runs from Vladimir Guerrero Jr.[13] The Yankees took the final game of the series, 3–0, to split the series at two games apiece.[14] Returning home, the Blue Jays began a three-game series against the Oakland Athletics with a 4–1 victory.[15] The second game went into the ninth inning tied at five, until Cristian Pache hit a two-run home run to give Oakland the game 7–5.[16] The Blue Jays won the final game, 4–3, backed by another strong performance from Alek Manoah.[17]

Toronto began a six-game road trip in Boston the following night, where Bo Bichette's first two errors of the season helped the Red Sox to a 2–1 win.[18] Raimel Tapia's first home run of the season paced the Jays to a 6–1 victory in the second game,[19] and Kevin Gausman's eight shutout innings in the third and final game helped the Jays to a 3–2 win in the finale.[20] In the first game of a three-game series against the Houston Astros, Matt Chapman's ninth-inning double drove in Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to give the Blue Jays a 4–3 victory.[21] Santiago Espinal broke a tie in the seventh inning of the second game, giving the Jays a 3–2 win.[22] However, the team had its four-game winning streak snapped in the final game of the series, losing 8–7 in the tenth inning.[23] On April 25, the Blue Jays returned to Toronto to begin a ten-game homestand, starting with four games against the Red Sox. Bo Bichette's first-career grand slam in the eighth inning gave the first game to the Jays, 6–2.[24] In the second game, Boston scored four runs in the eighth inning to take a 5–2 lead. In the ninth inning, back-to-back doubles from Raimel Tapia and Santiago Espinal scored a run, and George Springer's two-run home run tied the game at five and sent it to a tenth inning, where Tapia hit a walk-off sacrifice fly.[25] Boston took the third game, 7–1, with manager Alex Cora returning from having COVID-19.[26] The Blue Jays took the series victory with a 1–0 win in the final game, led by Alek Manoah's seven shutout innings.[27] To close the month, the Jays dropped the opening game of the series against Houston 11–7,[28] but bounced back in the second game with a 2–1 victory to end April with a 14–8 record.[29]

To begin May, the Blue Jays took the final game of the three-game series against the Astros, 3–2.[30] Ending their ten-game homestand, the Jays took on the Yankees. Toronto dropped the first two games of the series, 3–2 and 9–1 respectively, but salvaged the final game 2–1, ending the Yankees' 11-game winning streak and taking their first series loss of the 2022 season.[31][32] The Blue Jays then embarked on a nine-game road trip, beginning with four against the Cleveland Guardians. Rookie Steven Kwan's first home run helped Cleveland to a 6–5 victory in the opener.[33] The second game was rained out, and rescheduled as a doubleheader for the following day. The teams split the games, with Toronto taking the first 8–3 and Cleveland taking the second, 8–2.[34] The Guardians took the series with a 4–3 win in the finale.[35] After a day off, the Blue Jays were swept in a brief two-game series in New York against the Yankees.[36] With a 1–5 record on their road trip, the Blue Jays travelled to Tampa Bay for the first time in 2022, to take on the Rays. Toronto lost the opener, 5–2, which extended their losing streak to five games and lowered their record to 17–16.[37] The Jays ended their losing streak with a 5–1 victory in the second game, before dropping their fourth straight series with a 3–0 loss in the finale.[38][39]

The Jays returned home after a dismal 2–7 road trip to take on Seattle and Cincinnati. Home runs from Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman led the Jays to a 6–2 win in the opener against the Mariners.[40] The Jays took the second game 3–0 but were unable to complete the sweep, dropping the final game 5–1.[41] The Blue Jays had another opportunity for a sweep, taking the first two games against Cincinnati by scores of 2–1 and 3–1, but again lost the finale, 3–2, after Toronto native Joey Votto's first home run of the season gave the Reds the lead.[42] The Jays then travelled to St. Louis for two games against the Cardinals. Paul Goldschmidt hit a walk-off grand slam in the first game, giving the Cards a 7–3 victory.[43] Toronto salvaged the final game of the series, 8–1, led by two home runs from Danny Jansen.[44] After a day off, the Blue Jays travelled to Los Angeles for four games against the Angels. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the 2021 AL MVP runner-up, hit a home run off 2021 MVP winner Shohei Ohtani in the opener, leading the Jays to a 6–3 win.[45] The Blue Jays rallied in the ninth inning of the second game, with Lourdes Gurriel Jr.'s RBI single proving to be the difference in a 4–3 victory.[46] The Jays entered the seventh inning of the third game down 4–1, but scored five runs and then held on to win the game 6–5.[47] Toronto earned their first sweep of the 2022 season with an 11–10 win in the final game of the series, and closed May with their sixth consecutive win after defeating the Chicago White Sox 6–5.[48][49]
