Toronto Blue Jays players have been told to prepare to travel to Toronto, per Sportsnet‘s Shi Davidi.

Although there is no official announcement from the team at this time, Davidi says a charter flight is scheduled to leave Dunedin, Fla., on Wednesday.

The club’s equipment vans were also seen being loaded outside Toronto’s team facility in Dunedin, according to the Toronto Sun‘s Rob Longley.

The Blue Jays have yet to officially reveal where they will hold their training camp ahead of the shortened MLB season, although the club has expressed growing optimism about playing in Toronto.

On Friday, president and CEO Mark Shapiro said nothing was finalized yet but that players would be informed of where to travel on the weekend.

Last week, a COVID-19 outbreak struck multiple Blue Jays players and staffers at their facility in Dunedin. Since then, the club has worked to add a training camp with a July 1 start date to its restart plan for the regular season and submitted it to Canadian government health officials for consideration.
