The Toronto Blue Jays went 12-15 during the first month of the 2014 season, and while that's not exactly a great record by any means, it's still an improvement over last April, when the team went 10-17.
With the other teams in its division getting off to slow starts, Toronto remains only a game and a half out of first place in the American League East and is still very much in position to make a run.
Despite featuring nearly the same roster as last season, the 2014 Blue Jays have looked better in several areas that were weaknesses for the team in 2013.
With that being said, however, not all aspects of the team have improved from last season, and it appears that new areas of concern are beginning to emerge.
Let's take a look at the three biggest takeaways from the first month of Toronto's season.
