Number 4 — Lloyd Moseby

The second overall pick of the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1978 MLB draft, Moseby lived up to his potential, roaming the outfield in Toronto for 10 seasons.

Moseby made his debut in 1980 and became a fixture for the Blue Jays, earning an All-Star bid in 1986, one of five consecutive seasons where he totaled 31 or more stolen bases. He also used his speed to lead the American League in triples with 15 in 1984.

During his time in Toronto, Moseby slashed .257/.333/.415 and totaled 2,128 bases thanks in part to 242 doubles (fourth on the franchise record list) and 60 triples (second all-time for the franchise behind Tony Fernandez). His 255 stolen bases is a career-best for any Blue Jays player.

His 26.0 bWAR is the sixth-most for any Blue Jays player in franchise history.

Following the 1989 season, Moseby signed as a free agent with the Detroit Tigers, where he played two more seasons.
