Player Profile: Johnny Abrego

I have one card of Johnny Abrego, from 1986 Donruss.

Playing Career: Johnny Abrego pitched in six major league games (five starts) all for the 1985 Cubs. He went 1-1 with a 6.38 ERA.

My Memories: Never heard of him until I got this card.

Where He is Now: He was a scout for the Astros in the mid-1990s. Could not find where he is now.

Interesting Fact: Johnny Ray Abrego pitched in six major league games, two of which were against the 1985 Pirates whose second baseman was named Johnny Ray. Johnny Ray owned Johnny Ray Abrego, hitting three singles in four at bats, driving in two. He also was issued an intentional walk.

Coming up next: Tomorrow's profile will be Bob Abreu.

  1. Whoa, nice fun fact. Six games and he somehow manages to face a guy with basically the same name that many times...wild.
