A look at some Toronto Blue Jays news and notes surrounding Winter Fest, the Montreal Exhibition games and more.
The Blue Jays announced that for a third straight season they will be hosting Winter Fest for fans at the Rogers Centre. The fan expo will take place over two days between January 18th-19th, 2002 with tickets going on sale on Monday, November 18th.
This unique opportunity gives fans the chance to meet some the players and get up-close and personal with different areas of the Rogers Centre. In the past, the Blue Jays clubhouse, roof observation deck, and media centre have been open to the fans.
Montreal Exhibition Games
The Blue Jays are close to an agreement to return to Montreal for a pair of Exhibition games once again at the conclusion of spring training. This would mark the seventh straight season the Jays have traveled to La belle province.
The team’s long-standing agreement with event promoter Evenko expired following this season’s games versus the Milwaukee Brewers. The Jays currently have an open three- day block between their final Grapefruit League game and Opening Day.

Kay Waiting For Results Of CT Scan
Anthony Kay was unable to answer the bell for his last start due to back/side discomfort. The hurler had a CT scan on the trouble are and is just waiting for the results, however, he does not think the injury is muscular.
Kay was acquired in the Marcus Stroman trade and figures to challenge for a spot in the starting rotation next spring.
Tellez Reaches Milestone
Rowdy Tellez became the fourth rookie in franchise history to wallop 20+ homers in his first campaign. Tellez joins Eric Hinske (24), J.P. Arencibia (23) and Fred McGriff (20). Tellez sits at 21 round-trippers and three games remaining in the season.
Tellez would no doubt have added to that number had he not been demoted in the middle of July for a month. Surprisingly Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will not hit the mark as he is stalled at 15 homers.
