Defense wins and saves games, this is how Daulton Varsho is Daulton is pushing the Blue Jays toward being an elite defensive team.

Defense is so essential for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Despite enduring a costly, high-profile defensive error by Springer on Tuesday, the Blue Jays seem to embody the characteristics of certain teams.
While Toronto's fWAR (1.1), and pitching statistics, places them 26th among major league teams, they've allowed a middle-of-the-pack 4.32 runs per game, positioning them 14th in MLB.
Only 10 clubs have recorded fewer errors than the Blue Jays, yet the cornerstone of their success lies in their ability to consistently convert probable hits into outs.
53 total balls that were hit this season easily could've been hits but found found mitts, often via highlight-reel play.

Seeing Daulton Varsho prominently showcased among the top plays comes as no surprise, especially since he currently leads the majors in OAA (+7) after finishing 20th last year.
As stated, defense wins games, or in other times, can easily lose games, we are happy to have Varsho out in center filed making highlight reel catches night after night.
