Happy Birthday, Rod Lindsey

If you don’t remember outfielder Rod Lindsey, or his career 1.167 OPS, I’m with you. I had to look him up … and here’s what I found.

Lindsey came to the Tigers from the Padres in 1998 as the player to be named later in a trade for Scott Sanders.

He appeared in 11 games for the 2000 Tigers, wearing number 54, notching five plate appearances. His first and only major-league hit — a double — came in his last major-league game, a 12-11, come-from-behind Tigers win over the Twins in the season finale.

Not a long career, but at least a memorable finish. Happy Birthday, Rod.
