Player Profile: Alberto Arias

I'm now doing monthly top ten lists in addition to weekly "this week in baseball cards" posts at the Hall of Very Good. Check out Top Ten Subliminal Baseball Card Messages.

I have one card of Alberto Arias, from 2007 Topps Updates Highlights.

Playing career: Alberto Arias pitched for the Rockies and Astros from 2007 to 2009, going 4-2 with a 3.74 ERA.

Where he is now: After missing the past two seasons due to injury, he was back in Astros camp this spring but was released on Monday.

My memories: Never heard of him until I got his card.

Google Autocomplete Results: He is fifth when you type Alberto Ar, between Alberto Ardura, Head of Debt Capital Markets at Deutsche Bank, and Alberto Araya, a doctor in Wisconsin. Another prominent Alex Arias is head of the private equity firm Arias Resource Capital Management.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Alex Arias.
