February 22, 2013 — The Toronto Blue Jays are gearing up for spring training, which is set to kick off this Sunday at 1:05 p.m. in a game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Jays will be playing sixteen Grapefruit League home games between February 24 and March 26 at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium in Dunedin, Florida.

Fans can still purchase tickets -- but they're going fast.

The Blue Jays revamped its roster in the off-season by acquiring shortstop Jose Reyes, pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson plus catcher John Buck — all former All-Stars — along with utility player Emilio Bonifacio in a trade with Miami Marlins. The team then added reigning National League Cy Young winner and knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey in a trade with the New York Mets.

Finally, the team added outfielder Melky Cabrera to complete the overhaul.

The Jays will celebrate the 20 year anniversary of winning the second of back-to-back World Series this summer. With their new players, they're going to try and make it back to the post-season.

The team's first official game of the 2013 season will be on April 2, against the Cleveland Indians at the Rogers Centre.
