Sporcle: Blue Jays WAR Leaders (2000-2016)

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

As we wait to see where Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista end up, here's a quick quiz to test your Blue Jays knowledge. Today's quiz: Blue Jays WAR Leaders since 2000. One free clue: both Jose and Edwin made the list! Who would have thought?

For those of you who aren't familiar with WAR, here's a quick primer courtesy of Fangraphs:

Wins Above Replacement (WAR) is an attempt by the sabermetric baseball community to summarize a player's total contributions to their team in one statistic. WAR offers an estimate to answer the question, "If this player got injured and their team had to replace them with a freely available minor leaguer or a AAAA player from their bench, how much value would the team be losing?"- Fangraphs

Many of the players played multiple positions for the Jays, so their most common position is listed as the clue. Nine players on the list are currently under club control.
