Former MLB Right Fielder
Danny Tartabull Biography
Danny Tartabull was born October 30, 1962 is a former right fielder in Major League Baseball. Born to Cuban parents in San Juan, Puerto Rico, he is the son of José Tartabull, who played in the major leagues from 1962 to 1970.
Danny played for the Seattle Mariners (1984–86), Kansas City Royals (1987–91), New York Yankees (1992–95), Oakland Athletics (1995), Chicago White Sox (1996) and Philadelphia Phillies (1997). Originally a shortstop, Tartabull broke into the majors for good in 1986 with the Mariners, who moved him to right field after briefly experimenting with him at second base. He responded by hitting .270 with 25 home runs and 96 runs batted in, but his rookie season was overshadowed by those of Wally Joyner and José Canseco. The Mariners traded him to Kansas City for prospects Scott Bankhead, Mike Kingery and Steve Shields before the start of the 1987 season, where Tartabull avoided the sophomore jinx, improving to .309/34/101. Although sometimes slowed by injuries, Tartabull had five productive seasons with Kansas City, culminating with an All-Star selection in 1991. Tartabull became a free agent after the 1991 season and signed a deal with the Yankees worth more than $5 million a year, but he never again matched his production in Kansas City.
In July 1995 the Yankees traded Tartabull for Rubén Sierra and Jason Beverlin. Following his trade out of New York, Tartabull expressed his disdain for Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, saying that getting out of New York was like having been "released from jail". The Athletics in turn traded him to the White Sox the following winter for Andrew Lorraine and minor leaguer Charles Poe. He had 101 RBI but scored 58 runs, fewer runs than all but one player in history with at least 100 RBI. Tartabull wound down his 14-year career with the Phillies in 1997, appearing in just three games.
Tartabull retired following the 1997 season with a career batting average of .273, 262 home runs and 925 runs batted in.
