Comments on: Jody Gerut’s cycle http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/5871 This and that about baseball stats.

Cedeño, 22 years old and in his second full big-league season, opened the season with the Astros but was demoted to Tucson in late May with a .186 average, 1 HR, 5 RBI, .546 OPS, and 37 strikeouts in 111 plate appearances. He then hit for the cycle in his first game back with the Astros, boosting his average to .215 and his OPS to .656. It was all downhill from there, though — for the rest of the 1992 season Cedeño hit .133 in 121 plate appearances. He finished the season with a .173 MLB average and a .509 OPS (OPS+ of 47). Yow.

Cedeño turned in decent offensive numbers but fielded poorly at shortstop for the 1993 and 1994 Astros. He played two more seasons in the majors after that, putting up batting averages of .210 and .212.
