27. Cody Ross

Cody Ross had played briefly for Detroit, Los Angeles (NL), and was with Cincinnati for a pair of Games before his contract was sold to the Florida Marlins, where he would have an opportunity to play more.

Ross appeared in 157 Games from 2006 to 2007 but was elevated to a starting role in the Outfield and had back-to-back 20 Home Run Seasons in 2009 and 2009, with respectable Batting Averages of .260 and .270, respectively.

During the Marlins' cost-cutting, he was placed on waivers and was claimed by the San Francisco Giants.  The Giants went on to win the World Series that year, with Ross winning the NLCS MVP.  As a Marlin, Ross had 80 Home Runs with 503 Hits.
