Quilvio Veras

Veras spent three of his seven MLB seasons in sunny San Diego, and served as the team’s starting second baseman during the historic 1998 playoff run. Veras batted .270 in his Padres career, which ended in 1999 after he was traded to the Atlanta Braves alongside Reggie Sanders and Wally Joyner for Bret Boone and Ryan Klesko. He last appeared in an MLB game during the 2001 season.
