Chicago Cubs: The 2009 squad had an outfielder by the name of Joey Gathright

2009 was a lot like 2004, a team with high expectations that did not make the postseason in the end. Mixed within that story was the brief Cubs tenure of Joey Gathright. He is probably the most “obscure” name on this list, though he did play in 452 MLB games with a respectable .263/.328/.303 slash.

Gathright came to the Cubs in 2009 as a free agent in the offseason and played in just 20 games in red, white and blue before being traded to Baltimore for Ryan Freel. He recorded three singles in 14 at-bats and drew one walk. His tenure in Chicago was over in early May when the trade happened. Outside of a few people recording some Spring Training footage of him on YouTube, cannot say there are any highlight videos of him as a Cub online.

There are so many other names that could fit on this list, would love for readers to comment with more names!
