The Major League Baseball season has been shut down for 12 days now. As we have been doing we will try and tie that number into a bit of San Diego Padres history.
Today we’ll take a look at Ryan Klesko.
And the reason we’re looking at Klesko today is because he ranks 12th all-time in WAR for the Padres, according to Baseball Reference, and we are 12 days in without baseball.
It would have been better if his WAR was actually 12, but it’s even better at 15.9.
The California native spent seven seasons in San Diego after spending the first eight years of his big league career with the Atlanta Braves, where he won a World Series in 1995.
