1989 Topps Major League Debut #143: Dean Wilkins
PHOTO: Don't confuse Dean Wilkins with Rick Wilkins, a catcher who came up (also with the Cubs) a couple of years later. Dean Wilkins is the guy who looks like a sullen alcoholic on his 1989 Topps Major League Debut baseball card.
STAT: Only two batters got more than 1 hit off Wilkins: Darryl Strawberry (3) and Ricky Jordan (2).
ANAGRAM: Dean Wilkins = Swindle a kin
Sorry, he doesn't look like an alcoholic--he looks like someone who would steal from his own brother.
31 innings and a 7.55 career ERA.
