Why we like him: "Whatever happened to Pedro Muñoz?" I've asked myself that a few times for no reason whatsoever. He looked so promising. He was once an up-and-coming hot prospect for the (then World Series champion) Minnesota Twins. He hit for a good average with some decent power (.301 with 18 homers in 1995). However, he was never given more than 418 at-bats in a single season. He signed with Oakland as a free agent before the 1996 season, and batted .256 with 6 home runs in 121 at-bats and was lost in the outfield shuffle as the A's made room for young outfield prospects named Jason Giambi and Matt Stairs. Oh well.
Ladies and gentlemen, Pedro Muñoz, ballplayer.
