Player Profile: Chris Aguila

I have one card of Chris Aguila, from 2006 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Outfielder Chris Aguila had brief stints with the Marlins from 2004 to 2006, and with the Mets in 2008.

My memories: Never heard of him until I got his baseball card from 2006 Upper Deck. Looking two quickly at the card, I actually thought his name was Aquila for a while.

Where he is now: Back in the Marlins organization. At AAA New Orleans, he is hitting .282 with 9 HR and 40 RBI. He last played June 20 against Oklahoma City, going 0-4 with 4 strikeouts. (Perhaps that's why he hasn't played since...)

Interesting facts: Second Samoan to play Major League Baseball, after Tony Solaita.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type in Chris Ag, between musician Chris August and actor Chris Aguilar. Another prominent Chris Aguila is the owner of Felicity Intertrade.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Rick Aguilera.
