3. Gary Sheffield

Originally drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers, Gary Sheffield was traded to the Padres before 1992 and earned his first All-Star selection. That year, Sheffield posted a .330/.385/.580 line with 33 home runs and 100 RBI.

The following year, he hit ten bombs and drove in 36 runs in 68 games before he was traded to the Florida Marlins in June. The most notable piece that came over in that deal was Trevor Hoffman, who is the best closer in franchise history.

Sheffield played with the Marlins through the 1997 season, but he was traded to the Dodgers in May 1998. With the Dodgers, Sheffield posted a .316/.444/.535 line with 16 home runs and 57 RBI in the second half.

After the 2002 season, he was traded to the Braves, and he also spent time with the Yankees, Tigers, and Mets.
