Guess That 1994 Baseball Player! #5

As you can tell by yesterday’s answer, Al Martin, we’re not messing around anymore. Congratulations to Rass who accurately named Barry Bonds‘ replacement in the Pirates outfield.

Let’s keep the ball rolling with this mid-90s base baller.

Position: Third base      Team: Milwaukee Brewers

Height: 5’11”      Weight: 180 lbs.

Bats: right      Throws: right

Will……………….see action

Can’t……………..steal successfully

Expect…………..balanced offense

Don’t Expect……a gold glove

______ signed with the Athletics just before the start of the 1993 season, but he played so badly that he was demoted in late July. He refused to report to the minors and the Brewers claimed him off waivers July 29…______ played third and first for the Brewers, finishing the season with respectable offensive numbers…In reality, however, ______ is a fill-in player. His defense if mediocre everywhere, he is caught stealing as often as he succeeds, and his bat doesn’t justify everyday duty. ______ can be a valuable reserve because of his versatility if he accepts that role.

Yikes, sounds like somebody has an axe to grind. Just to show that the book doesn’t always know what it’s talking about, this guy hit .300+ as a starter for the next three years. Then again something else came into play around 1995 that seemed to give players a little more pop offensively…

So which Brewers stud is being described here?
