1. Roberto Alomar – .312 career batting average

Roberto Alomar only spent three seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, but he had a major impact on the team, and had an incredible career throughout the major leagues.

Alomar started his career with the San Diego Padres, playing for them for three years before being traded along with Joe Carter to the Toronto Blue Jays for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez.

He spent five years in Toronto and showed off his ability to get on base and steal bases in bunches. His 1993 season was particularly impressive, as he slashed .326/.408/.492 with 17 home runs, 109 runs, 93 RBIs, and 55 stolen bases.

Alomar left the Blue Jays for free agency and signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 1996, joining them for both of their American League Championship Series losses in 1996 and 1997.

He then signed with the Cleveland Indians and had what was likely the best year of his career with them in 1999, when he slashed .323/.422/.533 with 24 home runs, 138 runs, 120 RBIs, and 37 stolen bases.

He finished out his career with a few different teams, including the New York Mets, Chicago White Sox, and Arizona Diamondbacks. After signing a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2005 and having an injury-plagued spring training, he decided to retire.
