Angel Pena

Signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers as an amateur free agent in 1992, Pena would only get 187 at bats before leaving the game in 2007.  That said, he did have some fantastic minor league season; his 1998 campaign in AA was very impressive, with a .335/.401/.947 and he would go into 1999 as the Dodgers #1 prospect.  He would get 120 at bats with the big league club but only hit .208 with a .276 OBP.  He would never really stick in the majors, despite hitting well in the high minors.

Bob Henley

Drafted in the 26th Round of the 1991 draft, Henley would get a total of 454 at bats in the majors.  He was a fantastic minor league hitter, with OBP of .380 or better from 1994-1997 and a little pop.  He was even rated the Expo’s #9 prospect after the 1998 season.  But he was never able to stick, and was out of the game as a player by 2002.

Henley has stuck around in the game, though as a coach.  In 2015 he started his 23rd season with the Nationals organization, 13 of which has been as a coach.  He is now in his third season as a coach on the major league team.
