TORONTO -- Paul Quantrill is back with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The former right-hander was named as a consultant to the organization Tuesday. The 44-year-old native of London, Ont., spent six of his 14 major-league seasons with Toronto (1996-'01).

Quantrill, who played for seven major-league teams in total, was an all-star in 2001 and led the American League in appearances in 2001, 2002 and 2003. The following year he made a club-record 86 appearances with the New York Yankees.

Quantrill was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in June 2010. He joins former manager Cito Gaston and former outfielder George Bell as consultants while former infielder Roberto Alomar is a special assistant to the organization.
