The Blue Jays had an up and down season as they’ve committed to the rebuild, but how did some of their former players perform in other jerseys in 2019?

As baseball fans, most of us can’t help but get at least a little bit attached to those that play in our favourite team’s jersey, and that hasn’t made things easy for Blue Jays fans over the last couple of seasons as we’ve watched several beloved veterans move on.

As the Blue Jays have gone into full-on rebuild mode with their roster, they’ve made a lot of trades over the last two seasons, and as a result the roster looks a lot different these days in Toronto and could change even more over the winter. That said, there are still productive former Blue Jays throughout the big leagues, and personally, I can’t help but keep up with how most of them are doing.

With that in mind, I thought it might be fun to put together a 2019 All-Star team made up of former Blue Jays that are still active. This squad likely wouldn’t fare so well against a real All-Star team, but there’s some pretty legitimate talent among the group, even if it’s pretty top heavy. I decided not to include those that were traded this year, although that group may have been fairly limited in the end as well, save for a couple of pieces.

So without further adieu, what would that lineup look like?
