First-Quarter Grades for the Toronto Blue Jays
Matt Slocum/Associated Press

A quarter of the way into the 2014 MLB season, the Toronto Blue Jays are in fourth place in the competitive AL East. Only 1.5 games separate the top four teams in the division.

Toronto has a home record of 9-11 and a road record of 11-10, giving the team an overall mark of 20-21.

While this isn’t a great record by any means, it’s an improvement over last season where the Blue Jays were 16-24 by the first-quarter mark and already 9.5 games out of first place.

Quite a few players on the team who struggled last year have had much better starts to the 2014 season and have played a major role in Toronto’s jump up the standings.

At the same time, several players have also struggled out of the gate and have factored into many of the team’s losses this season.

Let’s take a closer look at each player on the Blue Jays and assign them a grade based on their performance up to this point.
