RANKED: 30 Greatest Shortstops of All-Time

27. Tony Fernandez


Another shortstop known for his defensive prowess, Fernandez was a steady force for the Blue Jays for the better part of a decade. A 5-time All-Star and 4-time Gold Glover, Fernandez was also very capable at the plate.

A lifetime .288 hitter, Fernandez finished his career with 2,276 hits and 246 stolen bases. Fernandez spent the first eight years of his career in Toronto before heading off to San Diego. After being named an All-Star in his second season with the Padres, Fernandez returned to Toronto. In 1993 the Blue Jays reached the World Series, and Fernandez came up huge — driving in nine runs in the series — helping Toronto to a World Series victory in six games.
