Former MLB Player Counter: I always keep track of players that are new to the league that bring MLB experience to it. Right now, ignoring Ducks pitching coach Dick Such’s 1970 season with the Washington Senators, the counter stands at two. The Long Island Ducks Erick Almonte played with the Yankees in 2001 and 2003 and the Newark Bears Doug Devore played with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2004.
