Juan Samuel

Juan Milton Samuel
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 170 lbs.
Born: December 9, 1960 in San Pedro De Macoris, DR
Signed: 1980 by the Philadelphia Phillies
Acquired: traded from the Phillies for
Lenny Dykstra, Roger McDowell, and a player to be named later (Tom Edens), June 1989
Departed: traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for
Alejandro Pena and Mike Marshall, December 1989

 

For his first four full seasons, he looked like a sure-thing Hall of Famer. For the next four seasons, he was barely an impact player; after that, he played seven more years as a part-timer. Still, he was a versatile guy that a lot of teams were glad to have coming off their bench. He's shown here on 1995 Score, and there are a couple of cards from his bright early days with the Phillies among the nearly two dozen pictured below.
