— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Saturday, July 20, 2002
C Eddie Taubensee and SS Gary DiSarcina have officially retired.
DiSarcina, 34, ends his 12-year MLB career at 258/292/341 over 3744 at-bats in 1086 games. In his best season, 1995, DiSarcina hit 307/344/459 with good defense to lead the Angels. Unfortunately, it was spoiled by injury. DiSar placed 8th in the AL in triples that year and was an All-Star.
Eddie Taubensee, 33, ends his 11-year MLB career at 273/331/430 over 2874 at-bats in 975 games. Taubensee, a swanky lefty platoon catcher and occasionally better, had been slowed by injuries over the last few years with his worsening back condition responsible for his ultimate retirement. In his best season, 1999, Taubensee took the primary load at catcher for the Reds, helping them to a 96-67 season and hitting 311/354/521. Taubensee was traded to the Indians for Jim Brower and Rob Pugmire after back surgery ended his 2000 season and never really became a part of the Indians due to the back problems and a liver infection.
