Blue Jays Players Face Jail Time If They're Caught Leaving Team's Bubble, Say Reports

The Toronto Blue Jays might be returning to action soon, but that doesn't mean players have free movement. In fact, the team is taking its health measures very seriously.

According to TSN's Scott Mitchell, citing numerous reports, Blue Jays players face jail time and a fine of three-quarters of a million dollars if they leave the team's stadium/hotel "bubble."

Players have been told penalty if seen outside ballpark is $750,000 fine and potential jail time.

That might sound hard to believe, but it's in line with Canada's Quarantine Act. That states that anyone who fails to comply with certain regulations faces a fine of not more than $750,000, imprisonment of up to six months, or both.

Mitchell says Jays players have been told they're in line for the maximum punishment if they're seen outside any stadium/hotel bubbles the team establishes. 

MLB is not mimicking the NBA in holding one all-encompassing site for all players and teams. Instead, franchises will host their own bubbles at home and for road games. The Jays are still waiting to see if they can play home games at Rogers Centre this summer.
