Top Blue Jays’ Draft Picks of All-Time
This is it. The MLB Draft begins on Monday night at 6:00pm (Eastern Standard Time) and with a rather weak looking draft class, it may be time to look back on the top draft picks the Jays have selected throughout their franchise history. As you can guess, the team has had a rather spotted history with the draft, with many wins, many misses, and even a few “what could have been” players tossed into the mix.
For the record, the following list of draft picks is categorized mainly by the leaders in WAR (wins above replacement) as it allows one to quickly determine how far they were above the average during their given careers.
You’ll notice not all– actually few– ended up Blue Jays and that at least one has a long way to go in climbing the list to become the top Blue Jay ever drafted.
