Tyrone Hill

Tyrone Hill had everything that a scout would want in a top prospect. He had the size, the stuff, and the athleticism to get selected as one of the top prospects in the 1991 draft. He never made it past Double-A in his career.

Hill was ranked as the 10th best prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America in 1993, and rightfully so. In his first year in professional baseball, Hill recorded 76 strikeouts in 60 innings, and managed a 3.15 ERA. In 1992, he dominated Single-A with 133 strikeouts in 113.2 innings with a 3.25 ERA.

Then the injuries hit. After struggling through his 1994 season, Hill missed all of 1995 recovering from an injury. He missed the 1997 season after another injury in 1996, and his career in the Milwaukee Brewers organization was over. He spent one year in the Texas Rangers organization in 1998, and called it a career at the ripe old age of 27.
