MLB Opening Day 2016: Roberto Osuna named closer, Blue Jays finalize roster

The Blue Jays announced more roster decisions this morning

The Blue Jays will start this season the way they finished last year - with Roberto Osuna as closer.

Osuna at this time last year was a surprise addition to the Blue Jays opening day roster and a year later will be the anchor of the Jays pen, beating out new addition Drew Storen.

Ezequiel Carrera will also stick with the team as the fourth outfielder and the team announced that Ryan Tepera will also make the team. Carrera beat out Darrell Ceciliani for the fourth outfield spot and Marco Estrada will start the season on the DL after getting a late start to Spring Training.

The Blue Jays bullpen and rotation seem to be much stronger than it was a year ago at this time and as we all know, things may be very different in October than it is now.
