6. Tommy Greene, SP

One of the best pitchers in the National League when healthy, Greene has one of his few injury plagued seasons in 1993, posting his best numbers of his career. He went 16-4 with a 3.42 ERA, allowing only 175 hits in 200 innings. Greene was also potent with the bat, hitting .222 with two home runs and 10 RBI.  Greene was hampered with injuries the rest of his career, retiring with the Astros in 1997 with a career record of 38-25 with a 4.14 ERA.

5. John Kruk, 1B

Coming over to the Phillies in a trade with the Padres in 1989, Kruk earned his third consecutive All-Star appearances in 1993.  Looking like the prototypical weekend softball player, Kruk quickly became a fan favorite. He hit .316 during the 1993 season with 14 home runs, 85 RBI, 111 walks and an OPS of .905. While playing for the White Sox in a July 1995 game, Kruk got a single and removed himself from the game, retiring on the spot with a .300 average.
