Random Red: Kevin Jarvis

In 1995 Kevin Jarvis was the number 4 prospect in the Cincinnati Reds organization. He had briefly debuted in 1994, but had failed to leave his mark on that strike-shortened season. During his major league career he bounced around between 11 teams in 12 seasons. He also spent some time with the Chunichi Dragons in Japan. He appeared in at least 20 games only 4 times and spent some times in the minors in every season but his 2001 season. On top of all that, one Mariner’s fan remembers him as the worst pitcher ever. But as a former Red he is still a significant former major leaguers to me. (Yes, as this implies, there are hundreds of significant former ball players in my mind). I have a measly seven cards of him in my collection and without looking at it, I have a feeling there are dupes of those and probably only 3 or 4 different cards. Even so I just got it into my head to see what he’s up to.

I always like seeing that former players have remained in the game and Kevin has. He is scouting for the Diamondbacks with aspirations of becoming a GM down the road. An e-mail to him went unanswered, but I hope he succeeds in his endeavors.
