1985 Coke #22 - Joel Skinner (J.C. Martin)

On this day in 1982, Joel Skinner was chosen by the Chicago White Sox as a free agent compensation pick from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Joel was blocked by Carlton Fisk and Marc Hill for most of his South Side career. In 1986, he was deemed expendable when Ron Karkovice came up from the minors. Skinner went on to the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians.
