Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Blue Jays and the Tigers.

David Wells

David Wells, nicknamed “Boomer”, was a major force on the baseball mound from 1987 to 2007, spending time with the Blue Jays, Yankees, Padres, and several other teams including Tigers, Red Sox, Dodgers, Reds, Orioles and White Sox.

A key player in the Yankees’ ’98 World Series win, Wells also pitched a rare perfect game that same year.

His career stats are impressive, with a total of 239 wins and over 2200 strikeouts over the course of 21 seasons.

Lance Parrish

Lance Parrish was an impactful catcher who played in Major League Baseball from 1977 to 1995. Spending the bulk of his career with the Detroit Tigers, Parrish was instrumental in the team’s 1984 World Series championship.

His strength at the plate resulted in 324 career home runs and over 1000 RBIs (114 with the Tigers in 1983).

Known for his defensive prowess as much as his offensive capabilities, Parrish earned three Gold Gloves (Tigers) for his excellent work behind the plate. He also earned eight All-Star selections (Tigers, Phillies, Angels), further highlighting his balanced skill set.

Matt Stairs

Matt Stairs had a lengthy Major League career that spanned from 1992 to 2011, during which he played for 12 different teams, essentially making him an Immaculate Grid Hall-of-Famer.

Known for his power-hitting abilities, primarily as a pinch-hitter, he hit 265 home runs over his career and holds the record for the most pinch-hit home runs in MLB history with 23. Stairs had a career batting average of .262 with an OPS of .832, and recorded 899 RBIs.

Notably, in the 2008 postseason with the Philadelphia Phillies, he hit one of the most famous home runs in Phillies history, helping the team move onto the World Series that year.

Francisco Liriano

Francisco Liriano began his MLB journey with the Minnesota Twins in 2005, quickly making an impression as one of the league’s promising young pitchers. In 2006, his breakout season, he was named an All-Star, and while his year was cut short due to Tommy John surgery, his performance left a lasting impression.

Over the years, Liriano played for various teams, including the White Sox, Pirates, Blue Jays, Astros, and Tigers. One of his career highlights came with the Pirates, where he won the 2013 National League Comeback Player of the Year after an impressive season on the mound.

Throughout his career, Liriano was known for his devastating slider and ability to generate strikeouts. His journey in the MLB was characterized by moments of sheer dominance, resilience in the face of injuries, and adaptability as he transitioned roles, even serving as a relief pitcher later in his career.
