SP4: Pat Hentgen - 26.8 WAR

Pat Hentgen's time with the Toronto Blue Jays was marked by his exceptional abilities and significant contributions to the team's triumphs. He was with the team from 1991 to 1999 and again in 2004, established himself as a dependable and effective pitcher with three All-Star game appearances, and a Cy Young Award.

Hentgen's success is exemplified by his impressive WAR of 26.8, which ranks him fourth among the team's all-time rotation. A standout season in 1996 where we won 20 games resulted in him being honored with the Cy Young Award. Throughout his tenure with the team, Hentgen accumulated an impressive total of 107 victories, including a remarkable winning performance in Game 3 of the 1993 World Series against the Braves. His ERA with the team was 4.32 as he faced some challenges towards the end of his time in Toronto, though his success during the mid-90s will be how he is remembered.
