The Blue Jays’ Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons, announced Friday that they will open their 2021 season in Trenton, NJ, while the Blue Jays complete an ongoing construction project to prepare Sahlen Field for Major League regular season games later this summer.

The Blue Jays currently plan to spend their first three homestands of the season, through May 24, at Dunedin’s TD Ballpark, where they held their home opener against the Angels on Thursday. No plans have been made official, but given the ongoing closure of the Canada-US border to non-essential travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it looks very likely that the Blue Jays eventually will spend a stretch of their season playing out of Buffalo once again as they work toward their long-term goal of returning to Rogers Centre later in 2021.
