3. Colby Rasmus – Houston Astros

Rasmus is a different story. I’m pretty sure fans rejoiced when he left town. I don’t think either he or the Blue Jays were interested in a reunion.

After signing with Houston, Rasmus said Texas “better fit his lifestyle.” In other words, he can drive his truck in the city.

Rasmus is having a strange statistical season with the Astros. He’s on pace for a career high in doubles and homeruns and over half of his hits have gone for extra bases, but he’s hitting .239 with an OBA of .301.

His 0.6 WAR is the second lowest of his career, likely due to how little he gets on base and his incredible strikeout rate (36.5 per cent, also the highest of his career).

Regardless of the low value, it’s almost all better than his numbers with the Jays last year and certainly better than Toronto’s centre fielders’ stats this year.
