"We talk about the big curveball, the fastballs up http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey , so I feel like why not come back as a lefty reliever and put one more chapter on the book."Ankiel was the runner-up for National League Rookie of the Year in 2000, when he finished11-7 with a 3.50 ERA in 31 appearances. However, that year's postseason proved disastrous for Ankiel, as he walked 11 batters in four innings.

Upon moving to the outfield in 2007, he played seven seasons in the big leagues,batting.242 with 74 home runs and 242 RBI.If Ankiel can successfully reinvent himself once, nobodyin 2019should be too surprised if he does it again.
