Rebuild under way as Blue Jays begin youth movement

TORONTO (AP) After two straight seasons of decline in Toronto, it's time to tear down and start over.

The Blue Jays had hoped to coax one more competitive push out of the core players remaining from 2015 and 2016, when Toronto made back-to-back appearances in the AL Championship Series. Things looked promising after a 16-12 start, but it didn't last.

A 9-19 mark in May, and injuries to key players including infielder Josh Donaldson and right-handers Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman, combined to sink Toronto's season. The Blue Jays finished 73-89, three wins fewer than the year before, and announced manager John Gibbons won't be back next year.
