  • Drafted by the Expos

    How many players drafted by the Expos (or played in Expos farm system) reach MLB without playing for the Montréal Expos?

    I know only 2:
    Jason Bay and Tony Phillips

    I'm sure that they are not the only ones...

    Throwing names out there:

    Kevin Reimer
    Charles Johnson. I believe they were both drafted by the Expos without playing with the team.

    Tom Brady. He reached the major without playing for the team, that I'm sure.

      Wow tough Q slaff.

      See a player drafted and then not signed currently can re-enter the draft (2 years ?) later.

      This cam about because of a player name Pete Incaviglia. He was drafted by the Expos but REFUSED to sign and then legally challenged the rules and succeeded in going else where. So he was drafted by but never played for the Expos. (the irony in this is that near the end of his career Mtl needed a 1B and he came begging for a job...getouttahere!!!)

      Now the drafting team receives a compensatory draft pick

      Then ,ore recently there was John Patterson (he acquired last spring in a trade with Arizona) who was drafted but never tenered a contract by Jim "chuckles" beattie and was declared a free agent.

      I do not have suffient memory cells left to try and identify any/all players drafted by the expos but who never played for the expos (affiliates) and then reached the bigs.... I would imagine there were a few. Especially in the early years.

        We could make 2 lists:

        Drafted but refused to sign
        -Pete Incaviglia
        -Charles Johnson?

        Played in Expos organisation
        -Jason Bay
        -Tony Phillips
        -Norm Charlton

        Kevin Reimer?
        I didn’t see anywhere that he was drafted by the Expos, nor that he played in Expos organisation?!

        John Patterson?
        He played with the Expos in 2004

        I'm sure that we will do the best that we could to find a maximum of players...

            The Roger Nelson drafted by the Expos doesn't seem to be the same...

            I looked at the 1968 draft (#130):
            http://www.sports-wired.com/draft/dr...g&R=6&ID=15921
            He is listed as a catcher from the Lincoln (NE) high school/college

            The "real" Roger Nelson was a pitcher and no college is listed for him at Baseball-reference...and in 1968 he was already in MLB

              You're absolutely correct. I neglected to notice that the information I was looking at mentioned him being drafted in 1968... despite having pitched for the Sox in '67.

                The played in expos orgaization will be huge. Just recently you have sizemore and lee in cleveland (Phillips played a couple of games in Mtl), all the prospects through the years that played in the minors but not the bigs....

                  When I mentionned Reimer, I was thinking about Incaviglia, my bad. I had their life stories tangled up. At my age, you start confusing big, beefy guys who use to play for Texas who were drafted by the Expos with big, beefy guys who played with Texas who use to live in Calgary. It's perfectly normal.

                      I don't know how reliable is the site Baseball Cube but...
                      Mark McGwire, Mike Boddiker, Glenn Davis, Phil Garner, Eric Hanson, Chris Sabo, Roy Smalley, Jeff Brantley,...

                      I'm a little bit surprise, especially for the selection of Mark McGwire...and Eric Cyr, a hometown boy.

                      Primarly drafted by the Expos, but start their careers with another MLB club...and come back with Montréal later:

                              There's no mention of him in the media guide, in the section where they list everyone that played for the Expos from 69 to 2003.
