It felt to Blue Jays fans that waited years for Kelvim Escobar to become the high-caliber Starting Pitcher that they expected.  It eventually happened, but it was an Angel.

Escobar joined the Angels as a Free Agent after the 2003 Season, and although his first year with the Halos saw him post a record of 11-12, his 3.93 ERA was good enough for tenth in the AL, and he was third in SO/9 with a career-high of 8.251.  Escobar was injured for most of the 2005 Season, but he had another productive year (11-14 and 3.60 ERA) and had his best season in 2007, where he had an 18-7 Record with a 3.40 ERA.  

Unfortunately for Escobar, he was injured again, missed all of 2008, and only appeared in one Game in 2009.  Escobar never played in the Majors again, and as an Angel, he had a record of 43-36 and 566 Strikeouts.
