Bobby Morgan

After Morgan was named International League MVP in 1949 (.337, 112 RBI), the Dodgers put a $250,000 price tag on him, and he moved to the head of a long line of heirs apparent to Pee Wee Reese‘s shortstop spot. When Reese’s tenure prevented that, he was projected as the next Dodger third baseman. Neither his batting nor his fielding was sufficient, and in 1954 he was traded to Philadelphia.
