Here’s a list I could come up with that have had good success. The list goes back to 1991. Terry Pendleton Andres Gallaraga Otis Nixon Lonnie Smith Julio Franco Here’s the ones that have had moderate success or been good backups. David Ross Vinnie Castilla Walt Weiss Sid Bream Rafael Belliard Eric Hinske Not that impressive. Can anybody think of any I’ve missed? We got Otis in a trade. It’s a little early to be consigning Upton to the Esasky pile just yet. That Reuschel Bros. card has been making me laugh since I pulled one out of a pack 36 years ago. Wasn’t Sheffield a free agent signing? He was great during the regular season; in the post season, not so much… Nope, traded from the Dodgers for B. Jordan and Odalis Perez.
