#288 Johnny Jeter 

On a personal note, I thought this guy would be a star…speed and power guy ala Bobby Bonds who was mired in talent laden Pirates outfield….Getting a chance to ascend the chronically rebuilding Padres… read the back of the card lead I.L in steals and hits….plus hit .320 at September call up in San Diego….I was wrong ….while some power showed, struck out frequently and clunked to a .228 BA….Traded to White Sox…rose his BA a bit but not enough to become an incumbent to the next year….stolen bases never materialized and failed when given more playing time….wound up in Cleveland for nearly a dozen and a half at bats in his last year of 1974.
