Outfielders (4)

Cam Eden

Ultimately, the Blue Jays are either going to carry a 13th pitcher or Cam Eden. The 25-year-old speedster is going to fill the Dalton Pompey role in the postseason, which is something he's made it clear he's perfectly fine with. He'll be pinch-running in every WC Series game.

Kevin Kiermaier

Did anyone really see Kiermaier's 2023 season coming? He was electric all year long for the Blue Jays and is consistently a real pleasure to watch. One of the best defensive center fielders in the history of the game, he also posted a 104 OPS+ this season, his highest since 2017.

George Springer

Like most other Blue Jays hitters, Springer went through some cold streaks this season but remains a dynamic top-of-the-order contributor. He played 154 games this year (his highest since 2016 when he played all 162) and drove in 72 runs, stealing 20 bases and posting a 102 OPS+ which is all the Jays could really ask for from a player in his mid-30s.

Daulton Varsho

As a massive Varsho truther, it was nice to see him hit some massive home runs in the final week of the regular season. Otherworldly defense, 20 home runs and almost 20 stolen bases while playing nearly every game of the year was a great overall performance from him.
