Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays won't be taking the mound for any home games in Major League Baseball this season, which is set to open on July 23.
The Canadian government on Saturday denied the team permission to play home games for fear of the spread of the coronavirus. It does not think it is safe for the Blue Jays to travel back and forth from the U.S., one of the countries hit hardest by the pandemic.
The team's alternate sites for home games include Dunedin, Florida, where it holds spring training, and Buffalo, New York, which is home to its minor league affiliate.
