Next Toronto Blue Jays Retired Number

Next Toronto Blue Jays Retired Number
By Bill Ordine
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

The Toronto Blue Jays have retired just two numbers in the franchise’s history. Those belong to second baseman Roberto Alomar, No. 12, and to righthanded pitcher Roy Halladay, No. 32. Alomar’s number was retired in 2011, and Halladay’s number was so honored in 2018.

Toronto has 11 names on its “Level of Excellence” but only Alomar and Halladay have been honored with the more exclusive distinction of having their numbers retired.

That said,, as part of our coverage of sports and Ontario betting sites, speculated on which former or current Blue Jay might be the next one recognized by having their number retired. For each player we give a percentage on the chance that their number will be put out of circulation someday, and we provide accompanying betting odds of that occurring.

Retired Numbers Vs. Level Of Excellence

You won’t find these odds at Ontario sports betting apps, only with us here at

The Level of Excellence is a display of names and, in some cases, uniform numbers of the honorees on the 500 level of the Rogers Centre. Those 11 (players, executives, managers, broadcasters) are: Jose Bautista, Paul Beeston, George Bell, Joe Carter, Tom Cheek, Carlos Delgado, Tony Fernandez, Cito Gaston, Pat Gillick, Roy Halladay and Dave Stieb.

However, looking back at the prospects for the next retired number, topping the speculative list is current player Vlad Guerrero Jr., with an 18.1% chance (which translates to betting odds of +450). Guerrero has only played five seasons since his MLB debut in 2019 but he’s already a three-time All-Star and led the American League in home runs and runs scored in 2021.

Next on our list is a player who is already on the Level of Excellence, the retired Jose Bautista. We give him an 11.1% chance, or +800 odds. The third is the still active Bo Bichette at a 6.2% chance, odds of +1500, followed by two retired players – Carlos Delgado (4.7% chance, or +2000) and Vernon Wells (3.2%, +3000).

Actually, the favorite in the speculative exercise is any “other” player’s number being retired with a 54.5% chance, which is odds of -120. Keep checking for more sports stories plus reviews of Ontario online casinos you’ll want to check out before playing.
