From Canada, Ryan Dempster was a product of the Texas Rangers organization before he was traded to Florida in 1996.  Two years later, the Pitcher received his call up.

Dempster struggled in his first year (1-5, 7.08 ERA) and improved as a sophomore (7-8, 4.71 ERA), but he truly arrived in 2000, going to his first All-Star Game on a year where he went 14-10 and fanned a career-high 209 Strikeouts.  Although his ERA and WHIP went up in 2001, he had a 15-12 record.  With the knowledge that Dempster would be a Free Agent after 2003, Dempster was traded during the 2001 Season, ending his Marlins stint at 42-43 with 628 Strikeouts.

Although hitting should not reflect a Pitcher’s overall rank that much, Dempster does lose a few spots, as he was abysmal at the plate, even for his position.  Dempster batted only .068 in 265 Plate Appearances as a Marlin, and this level of ineptitude does matter.
