I think this is the American Toad and here's why. Here in Mass we only have two toads. The American Toad and Fowler's Toad. This toad appears to have one to two large warts per dark spot, where the Fowler's has several per dark spot. Also it appears there are larger warts on the tibia in this example. It's hard to see the cranial ridges so that won't help but I think it's safe to say it an American Toad.
