Nigel Wilson- Worst Player Ever
Nigel Wilson played parts of 3 seasons in the majors (1993- Florida Marlins, 1995- Cincinnati Reds, and 1996- Cleveland Indians). During that time he amassed what quite possibly be the most horrific career line in modern day history with a .086 batting average and .368 OPS. That's so shitty that most NL pitchers post better stats than that. In 35 at bats, he managed to squeak out only 3 hits, but he did whiff 21 times (that's 60%). Originally signed as an ameteur free agent in 1987 by the Toronto Blue Jays, Nigel was the Marlins 1st pick in the 1992 expansion draft, and it's amazing they ever went on to win World Series with a drafting strategy like that. He was a fricken monster in the minors posting a .295 average, 102 homeruns, and a .882 OPS in 5 seasons. Following his disappointing time in American baseball, he went on to experience success in Japan with the Nippon Ham Fighters and Osaka Kintetsu Buffaloes.
