A great defensive shortstop, Fernandez also had solid all around skills with the bat. He stole 20 or more bases four times, and in 1990, led the American League with 17 triples. Fernandez was a four time All Star during his time as a Blue Jay, and won four Gold Glove awards, contributing as much with his glove as he did with his bat.
