Behind the Toronto Blue Jays’ top-ranked offense, many names come to mind: Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson, Russell Martin, Jose Reyes. But there’s one name that almost nobody thinks of. He wears number 15 and is the polar opposite of what a true “star” would look like: Chris Colabello. Colabello is the prime example of a late-bloomer. He made his MLB debut...
