  • What happened to Roger Bailey?

    I stumbled upon this name, which I'm not sure I've ever even heard of.

    Roger Bailey pitched for the Rockies from 1995 to 1997. He showed a little promise in 1995, posting a 108 ERA+ in 81.1 innings his first season (despite a 4.98 ERA!). In 1996 he struggled, but then in 1997 he performed very well, going 9-10 with five complete games, two shutouts, a 4.29 ERA and a 121 ERA+. He even hit .210 at the plate, after hitting .263/.364/.526 in 1996. His 1997 campaign was worth 3.8 pWAR and 0.3 regular WAR, per Baseball Reference.

    Yet, he never played in the majors again after '97. What happened to him?

      He was in a bad traffic accident in Spring 1998; the car he was riding in was rear-ended. It wrecked his back, and that essentially ended his career.
