Report: Marco Estrada Will Take the Ball on Opening Day

The Blue Jays have a strong rotation one through five, with nobody who is clearly head and shoulders above the rest. Aaron Sanchez might have a thing to say about that, based on the way that he pitched in 2016, but he maybe slowed down a little bit in the second half. J.A. Happ won […]
