41. Marvin Freeman (Rockies career WAR 5.8)

More from Colorado Rockies All-Time Lists

Freeman was a successful reliever with the Atlanta Braves before he was signed by the Rockies after the Braves released the towering righty (6-foot-7) following an injury-riddled 1993 campaign.

Despite him not starting a single game since 1990, he won a spot in the rotation out of spring training going into the 1994 season. He went on to have one of the magical one-hit-wonder seasons in Rockies history. That insane year saw him pitch to the tune of a 2.80 ERA (still a Rockies record), 10-2 record, an ERA+ of 179, and WAR of 4.5 in this strike-shortened season.

This unfortunate set of events ended a promising season for many a Rockie. However, we can’t complain too much as the strike set up the ability for the completion of our beloved Blake Street Bombers.
