Number 6: German Marquez (31 OPS+, 184 plate appearances)
German Marquez is one pitcher that I thought would, at least, be in the top five on this list.
Overall, he has a career slash line of .233/.233/.302 with an OPS+ of 31. He has 1 home run and 21 RBI along with six doubles and a triple.
He did win a Silver Slugger Award in 2018 (65 OPS+) and he still hit well in 2019 (39 OPS+) but he did not do well at the plate in 2017 (-2 OPS+ in 53 plate appearances). That’s mainly what kept him lower on this list.
If you were to just consider the last two seasons, his OPS+ would actually put him at number two on this list with an OPS+ of 53.
Number 5: Denny Neagle (33 OPS+, 131 plate appearances)
Denny Neagle was a huge disappointment as a pitcher for the Rockies and one of the biggest free-agent missteps in Rockies’ history.
He was not a particularly good hitter elsewhere so maybe this one is more of the “Coors” effect.
He hit .205/.224/.330 in three seasons as a Rockie with two home runs and 10 RBI along with eight doubles. However, his career OPS+ was never higher than 7 with any other team.
