Roy Lee Jackson

Toronto obtained Jackson from the Mets in a trade for Bob Bailor, the Blue Jays’ first pick in the expansion draft, and Jackson became a competent reliever for a poor team. With fairly modest accomplishments, Jackson was able to make entries in the Blue Jay record book that would stand until the emergence of Tom Henke. Jackson’s 10 saves in 1984 tied the Blue Jay single-season high at that time, and his 30 career saves had him one behind club leader Joey McLaughlin at the time of Jackson’s release. In May 1984, Jackson set a club record for wins in a month with six, all in relief.
