The Toronto Blue Jays, heading into a season in which the club has championship aspirations, have announced the roster that will take to the field for Opening Day.

Fifteen pitchers, three catchers, six infielders and four outfielders made the roster. Both Nate Pearson (mono) and Ryan Borucki (hamstring) were placed on the injured list and did not make the cut.

Zack Collins, recently acquired from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for Reese McGuire, cracked the 28-man roster.

The Blue Jays open their 2022 season at home against the Texas Rangers on Friday. You can watch the game live on Sportsnet with coverage starting at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT with a special edition of Tim and Friends live from the Rogers Centre followed by a one-hour edition of Blue Jays Central at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT.
