Kyle Abbott

A top pitching prospect in the Angels’ farm system, Abbott was dealt to Philadelphia with Ruben Amaro, Jr. in a deal for Von Hayes after making his major-league debut with California in 1991. Handed the fifth starter’s job by the woeful Phillies, Abbott lost 14 of his 15 decisions and languished in Triple-A the following season as the big-league club surged to the NL pennant. He played in Japan in 1994 but returned for brief stints with the Phillies and Angels to close out his career.
