The sale of the team would free up capital for other investments according to Chief Financial Officer Tony Staffieri. However, he did add that no deal is imminent.

Rogers purchased controlling stake in the Blue jays in 2000 from Belgian brewer Interbrew. In 2005, the SkyDome was renamed Rogers Centre.

The broadcast and telephone giant has previously indicated it was exploring ways to get more value from its portfolio of assets, including the Jays.

After not being able to follow up from their success in 2015 and 2016, the Jays finished this past season at 76-86. They will open the 2018 MLB season on March 29 at home against the New York Yankees.
