Chicago Cubs: This is one guy a lot of fans might not remember when mentioned. But he did indeed play for the 2016 Cubs

At the time of his MLB debut in 2016, Gerardo Concepcion was 24 years old and had been in the Cubs organization since signing an amateur free agent in 2012. Concepcion had an up-and-down minor-league career before his debut with the Cubs on June 21st against the Cardinals, where he threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

Concepcion would make two more appearances on June 25th and June 26th before returning to Triple A. That brief stint was all we saw of Concepcion in the majors, just a total of 2.1 innings. He remained with the organization until being released in May 2017.

Not much else to say, this is a name most probably do not remember, but hey, he has pitched more MLB innings than all of our fans and gets to say he was part of a special team.
