Top 10 Former Blue Jays Currently on Other Teams

Alex Rios was not too liked as time went on

Over the May 25th-27th weekend road trip in Texas, I watched Michael Young and thought about what he would look like in a Blue Jays uniform today.  In fact, Young was once a Blue Jays player.  He was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 1997.  

That made me think—what about the players that the Toronto Blue Jays did have on their team?  Players they drafted or had in the farm system for more than one season but are no longer playing on the Blue Jays now?

It is an interesting list.  

Some players were traded, some waived and others were simply purchased by other teams.  Players on this list have won Gold Gloves, appeared in All-Star games, won multiple World Series, won Cy Young awards and are still playing at a high level to this day.

1993 was the season the Blue Jays won their last World Series.  It’s also the year they drafted someone from this list.  

I put together the top 10 and have three honorable mentions.  When ranking the players, I took into account their postseason success, any awards they have won and All-Star game appearances.  Then, I looked at their stats and how they played on their new teams.  Some have only been away from the Blue Jays organization for a year or two, so they rank lower. 

You might be surprised by No. 1.
