#10- Devon White- 22.3 WAR

Devon White was an integral part of the WAMCO contingent that propelled the Toronto Blue Jays to back-to-back World Series championship titles in 1992-93. The Blue Jays acquired the slick-fielding outfielder from the California Angels in a six-player swap in the winter of 1990.

Devo would spend 5 years north of the border compiling a 22.3 WAR total while with the Blue Jays. From 1991 to 1993, White was a model of consistency as his WAR totals mimicked one another for those three seasons notching totals of 6.3, 6.2 and 6.3.

In 1991, White hit .282/.342/.445 with 17 home runs and 33 stolen bases while playing Gold Glove defence for the Blue Jays. The outfielder would claim the Gold Glove award in all five years he patrolled centre field for Toronto.

White would end up joining the Florida Marlins via free agency in 1995 closing the book on a Blue Jays legacy. Devo would retire after playing for 17 seasons with six different teams sporting a final WAR total of 47. 3 for his career.
