 Biographical Information
Nigel Wilson was a minor league slugger and star in Japanese baseball. His career in the U.S. major leagues didn't take off, as he hit .000 in his first two cups of coffee.
He was drafted by the Florida Marlins with their first pick in the 1992 expansion draft. Coming up in September 1993, he went 0-for-16. Later, coming up in 1995 with the 1995 Cincinnati Reds, he went 0-for-7.
In 1996, his last cup of coffee, he slugged .750 for the 1996 Indians, going 3-for-12 with 2 homers. It was a tough outfield to break into, as the 1996 Indians had Albert Belle, Manny Ramirez and Kenny Lofton in the outfield with Jeromy Burnitz and Brian Giles looking for playing time there.
