TORONTO BLUE JAYS SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ: Goofing Off and Getting to Work

The Toronto Blue Jays are on a winning streak – and not just on social media

We scoured social media to bring you the best the internet has to offer with this collection of Blue Jays Social Media Buzz.

The Jays are on settling in after the trade deadline, adjusting to their new six-man starting rotation and piling up the wins. Their social media activity has been a little on the lighter side, but what can you expect? They’re too busy winning…

Too Close for Comfort

While celebrating another fantastic save with his batterymate Russell Martin, Roberto Osuna got a little handsy. Thankfully for Russ, his cat-like reflexes saved a little of his dignity. Osuna apologized, Russ retweeted it and all is well.

Welcome to the New Guys

At the recent trades deadline, the Blue Jays acquired Melvin Upton Jr., Scott Feldman, Mike Bolsinger and Fransicso Liriano. The guys took to social media to welcome their new teammates.

Jason Grilli, who came to the team in late May, reassured Melvin Upton Jr.

And Russell Martin offered up a warm hello

Upton Jr., said he was thrilled to be a Jay

Goofing Off

Call him Professor Stro…On a recent commercial shoot, Marcus Stroman taught some fellow athletes how to throw a fastball.

Even Superman needs a good laugh. Kevin Pillar got a dose at a recent Second City Toronto show.

Speaking of Pillar, his Travel Hacks with American Express are making the rounds again – his sage advice on how not to miss a plane is very helpful!

Here are just a few articles/interviews with the media from some of our favourite Blue Jays:
