Toronto Blue Jays Social Media Buzz: Maxing and Relaxing in the Offseason

The Toronto Blue Jays are enjoying an offseason of sports including football, golf, hockey and ping pong (ohh, and a little baseball, too!).



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



It’s an oft-used phrase in baseball that after a long and difficult road trip, a little “home cooking” can do wonders for a team. For Edwin Encarnacion, that extends into the offseason – he’s definitely enjoying himself some native food and brews at home in the Dominican Republic.

Buen provecho a todo,nada Mejor que estar en casa,hogar dulce hogar…Salud

And just in time for holiday shopping, Edwin launched an online shop, EE10, recently – which features a variety of shirts for men, women and kids.


Marcus Stroman’s HDMH brand launched its long-awaited apparel line to huge success earlier this fall. After just a short time on the market, they had to restock several of their most popular items. Don’t worry though – they were ready to go again November 2 (but I’d order quickly, these items are flying as fast as MamaStro can ship them out!)


And in case anyone is looking for a birthday or Christmas present for me, one of these in a small would be just perfect!

Stroman is getting in some quality time with the family during the offseason. He even played the part of a spectator recently – cheering on his little brother during a football game. How’s that for a role reversal?

He’s balancing family time with workouts…


And, of course, time with the guys…


Jose Bautista is maintaining a fairly low social profile these days – but he did whip out the emojis for this recent TBT.


Dalton Pompey also reacted, very truthfully on Twitter, to the photo above…which actually deserves its own laughing/crying emoji response:


And while the will-he-or-won’t-he? scenario surrounding Bautista and Encarnacion will continue to play out during the Hot Stove season, Melvin Upton Jr. is not holding back his hopes for where he ends up next season.


Kevin Pillar recently underwent surgery to repair a thumb that bothered him throughout the season. He’s recovering in style, taking in an LA Kings game from fantastic seats!

Thank you to the @lakings for an amazing night!! Can’t wait to come back.

Russell Martin hasn’t posted about attending any games this offseason, although he did Insta quite a back and forth game of ping pong on the deck of his Florida home recently.

Ryan Goins spent his Saturday like a lot of sports fans – tailgating at a college football game.


Josh Donaldson was really happy he didn’t bring any rain to his recent golf outing, where he makes some pretty big claims about his golf game against the GOAT:

Took cash from the ? MJ. Got to say it was a good day!

And while Donaldson may have won some cash – Roberto Osuna was recently honored with a National Sports Award in his native Mexico.


Osuna was obviously honored, tweeting “Thank you Mexico and Thank You people who believed in me!”



And finally, the Blue Jays fell short of the World Series this season, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t watching and cheering like the rest of us. Of course, they were also cheering for their friends and in some cases, former teammates, too…



That’s all from the Internets for this week – we’ll be back next weekend with more offseason antics from the Toronto Blue Jays!


* Writer’s note: For the purposes of this fun little curation, I refer to the Blue Jays official roster of players. As we enter Hot Stove season, that will be continue to be my guideline: as players are added, they will be added to my list and included in these posts; as they leave, I will monitor their social media accounts to include any posts relevant to their time with the Blue Jays before moving on.
