Just one day after trading away Rick Aguilera
, one of the more popular players on the Twins team, General Manager Terry Ryan's bloodlust was cresting and he was hungry for another trade. Who would be his next victim?
The Trade: BREAKDOWN!
The Minnesota Twins traded Scott Erickson
to the Baltimore Orioles for Scott Klingenbeck
and a player to be named later (Kimera Bartee
). Erickson provided the Orioles with 16 good starts in 1995 and then threw over 900 innings for them from 1996 to 1999. His 1997 and 1998 seasons were particularly impressive, especially when you account for the high run scoring era. Bartee was nothing special, and fittingly, the Orioles drafted him from the Twins in the rule 5 draft after the 1995 season.
