Nady played for eight MLB clubs in his 15-year career, and he started and ended it in San Diego. After officially making his debut by appearing in a game in September 2000, Nady played three seasons in his first stint with the Friars from 2003-05. In June 2005, Nady homered in four consecutive games. Following the season, Nady was traded to the New York Mets for Mike Cameron. Nady re-signed with the Padres in the 2014 offseason, but played just a handful of games before being designated for assignment in May. Those would be the last games of his MLB career.
