Fermin spent 10 years in the bigs as a mostly awful MIF with the Pirates, Indians, Mariners and Cubes. Career WAR of 1.8, OPS of .608. He led the league in sacrifice hits … er … PRODUCTIVE OUTS in 1989. He’s now the manager of the Delfines de Ciudad del Carmen in the Mexican League.
That time the Yankees almost traded Mariano for Felix Fermin.
