The Ex Files: Scott Fletcher

Scott Fletcher's first tenure with the White Sox was from 1983 until 1985. He was dealt to the Texas Rangers as part of a deal that brought pitcher Dave Schmidt and infielder Wayne Tolleson to the South Side.

While his arrival in 1983 helped spark a division title, his departure left a noticeable void in the middle of the infield, starting in 1986.

How did he fare in his first season away from the White Sox? He excelled in his first year in Texas with a career high .300 batting average and Scott was named AL Player of the Month in July 1986.

The void left by Scott was so bad, that in 1989, the White Sox traded for him (along with Wilson Alvarez and Sammy Sosa), dealing Harold Baines and Fred Manrique. With Scott back in the fold, the Sox dragged themselves out of last place and took a shot at the division once again in 1990.
