No. 3: Michael Martinez
The Phillies plucked Michael Martinez from the Washington Nationals in the 2010 Rule 5 draft, hoping to employ his versatility as the team’s utility man. Martinez did just that, playing every position besides first base, catcher, and pitcher during his three seasons in Philadelphia.
The issue was Martinez only stood out for his poor numbers. He was able to stay with the team the entire year despite the fact that he had a .196/.258/.282 line in 88 games.
Martinez got even worse in his 45 games in the majors in 2012, posting a .461 OPS (24 OPS+). His OPS dropped even further in 2013 to .350, with a -2 OPS+. After that abhorrent year, he was outrighted off the 40-man roster and elected free agency.
