The New York Yankees are set to take a fully healthy ballclub to Toronto for their upcoming series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The city of Toronto recently declared that any athlete who is unvaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to participate in any sporting events that are happening within the city.
The Yankees had a few players who had remained unvaccinated.
However, that appears to have changed, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman.
Heyman says that the last few remaining players who were not vaccinated have since been given the vaccine, which allowed Yankees manager Aaron Boone to say that he will have a full squad ready for the team’s series in Toronto.
The couple Yankees who remained unvaccinated into last week have told the team they are now vaccinated. Which is why manager Aaron Boone was able to say he’s confident all his players will be eligible to play in Toronto.

Yanks Set For Toronto
The Yankees should be good to go when they travel to Toronto.
With everybody now vaccinated, they should be able to put their best lineup out on the field when they play the Blue Jays.
Last season, first baseman Anthony Rizzo had tested positive for COVID-19.
It was later discovered that Rizzo was not vaccinated.
Now, it appears that issue has been solved and Rizzo should be all set for the series in Toronto.
As long as everybody is still healthy, all of those stars should be ready to go in Toronto.
We’ll see if other players around the league who are still unvaccinated end up deciding to get the vaccine.
Again, athletes who are not yet vaccinated are not allowed to take part in any sporting events in the city of Toronto as a result of the mandate.
