Más de Jesus

He was working relief at Omaha when the Royals decided they needed another arm at the major league level. They gave him a couple of quick starts and called him up. He didn’t pitch very well, but the Royals at the time were winning every game…tremendous movement on his fastball will continue to make it difficult for him to hit the strike zone.
— Bill James on Jose de Jesus, The Bill James Player Ratings Book 1995

Royals with de Jesus (1994): 64-51, .557

Royals without de Jesus (1995-2010): 1,087-1,483, .423, one winning season out of sixteen

¡qué lástima!
