TTM Goodness: Tucker, Carman, Nieves, Dorsett

First, go to the sidebar and vote in Ugstravaganza.
Today's TTM's have no theme, other than these four have been sitting in my scan folder for far too long. Let's ride.

Michael Tucker was drafted by the Royals in 1992 and debuted for them in 1995. Over the next 12 years he'd play for 7 different teams, including three years for the Reds, 1999-2001. In 367 games, Tucker hit .255 with 33 HR and 110 RBI. Signed is a 2001 Fleer Tradition #86.

Don Carman was signed as a free agent in 1978 by the Phillies and debuted for them in 1983. After 8 years in Philly, he would close his career with a year each in Cincinnati and Texas. Carman pitched 36 innings in 28 games for the Reds in 1991. He took a perfect game into the 9th inning in 1986, finishing the game having allowed one baserunner. Signed is a 1991 Kahn's #(36).

Melvin Nieves was signed as a free agent in 1988 by the Braves and debuted for them in 1992. After 6 years in the bigs with the Braves, Padres, and Tigers, Nieves finished his career with a year in Cincinnati. In 1998, Nieves had 147 plate appearances in 83 games for the Reds. Signed is a 1999 Pacific Crown Collection #76.

Brian Dorsett was drafted in 1983 by the A's and debuted for Cleveland in 1987. In his 8 big-league years he'd see playing time for the Indians, Angels, Yankees, Padres, Cubs, and, for two years, the Reds.
