Player Profile: Yuniesky Betancourt

I have eight cards of Yuniesky Betancourt. This one is from 2008 Topps.

Plyaing career: Shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt played for the Mariners, Royals and Brewers from 2005 to 2013. He had a little bit of pop and made some flashy plays, but was overall mediocre with both bat and glove. In 1,156 major league games, he hit .261 with 80 HR and 457 RBI.

Where he is now: He signed with the Orix Buffaloes in Japan for 2014.

My memories: I remember him vaguely as a mediocre infielder on some mediocre teams, but nothing specific.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Yuni, ahead of Yunio, a cloud storage company. There do not appear to be any other prominent Yuniesky Betancourts.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Wilson Betemit.
