The Toronto Blue Jays have made the cover of Sports Illustrated for the first time since 2005.

The Jays are on the front of the magazine's annual MLB playoff preview with designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, pitcher David Price, catcher Russell Martin, right-fielder Jose Bautista and third baseman Josh Donaldson flanking manager John Gibbons under the headline "The New Jacks."

The issue hits newstands on Wednesday.

Being on the Sports Illustrated cover has been seen as a jinx for some although Michael Jordan did OK with his 50 covers.

Cleveland, Seattle, Kansas City and Washington were featured on SI's baseball season preview issue. Only the Royals made it to the post-season.
