Rogers Communications Inc May Be Looking To Sell Blue Jays

Rogers Communications would consider a possible sale of the Blue Jays to free up capital for other investments, chief financial officer Tony Staffieri said Tuesday.

“I really enjoyed all of our interactions with [CEO] Joe Natale, [deputy chairman] Edward Rogers, Tony Staffieri, they’ve really helped us be a better organization and that will remain to be the same as far as I’m concerned.” Per club policy, Toronto does not publicly discuss payroll, but the Blue Jays spent approximately $165 million on salaries in 2017, and the number is expected to be similar next year.
