Desi Relaford Desi played parts of five seasons for the Phillies -- mostly at shortstop -- after being acquired for Terry Mulholland in 1996. He would go on to play for seven MLB teams over 11 seasons. A utility infielder, he hit 40 more home runs and stole 81 more bases in the pros than most of you did.
