They play the Jays five times and the Red Sox and Yankees four each. The regular-season opener is April 1 at home against Baltimore.

Other Tampa Bay area appearances include: March 2 and 13 in Dunedin against Toronto; March 6 and 12 in Clearwater against Philadelphia; March 17 and 28 in Tampa at night against New York; Feb. 27, March 7 and 27 in Bradenton against Pittsburgh.
