Mellow Carmelo

Carmelo Martinez as a Phillie: .242/.339/.404, 105 OPS+, 8 HR in 198 AB, or almost exactly his career averages of .245/.337/.408, 108 OPS+

Mellow Carmelo was traded to the Pirates when Pittsburgh GM Larry Doughty placed both Wes Chamberlain and Julio Peguero, two rookie prospects, on irrevocable waivers in error and the Phillies claimed them. (Pittsburgh also sent prospect Tony Longmire to the Phillies to complete the trade.)

Also worth noting: Carmelo has a 949 similarity score with former Angels/Red Sox/Cubs of/1b Lee Thomas– the Phils GM who acquired him.
