Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Jaime Bluma: RHP drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the third round in 1994 . Short pitcher but had a good arm, got through the minors quickly and pitched well in Royals bullpen in 1996. Blew out his arm and missed all of 1997, and he was never the same after that, losing both velocity and command. Career ended at age 28. 3.60 ERA in 20 major league innings, 14/4 K/BB, five saves. Could have been a very good closer if he had stayed healthy." - Sportswriter John Sickels (05/17/2011, 'Wichita State Pitchers in Professional Baseball, 1990-2010', Source )

Why is there a picture of a smiling Rex Hudler on Jaime Bluma's page? On August 9, 1996 , Bluma made his Major League debut, entering the game as a relief pitcher in the bottom of the sixth inning, facing Rex Hudler in his first trip to a big league mound, no men on base, no outs. With the count 1-1, Bluma left one a bit too much over the plate and Hudler crushed the ball deep to left-center field. Bluma joined the " Home Run Allowed to First Batter Faced Club " - the second Kansas City Royals pitcher in franchise history to join the "club".
