Player Profile: Jaime Bluma

I have five cards of Jaime Bluma. This one is from 1995 Bowman.

Playing career: Jaime Bluma pitched in the Royals organization from 1994 to 2000, going 19-18 with a 3.94 ERA and 76 saves. In 1996 he appeared in seventeen games in the major leagues, going 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and five saves.

Blog synchronicity: This is the blog's 1998th post. In 1998 Bluma split the season between AA Wichita and AAA Omaha, going 1-3 with 2 saves and a 5.54 ERA in 53 games.

Where he is now: He teaches the baseball camps at 68 InsideSports in Overland Park, KS.

Interesting facts: In 2013 Bluma assisted a family, including two babies, whose car flipped over in an accident in front of where he was driving. Bluma immediately pulled over and helped pull the family out of the car. In the rescue Bluma ruptured his patella tendon, which ended up being the worst injury suffered in the accident.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Jaime Bl, between Jamie Blais, Associate Director, Global Medical Affairs at Otsuka Pharmaceuticals, and Jaime Blanch, an actor. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jaime Blumas.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bert Blyleven.
