2009 The Marlins acquire Nick Johnson from the Nationals in exchange for left-handed pitching prospect Aaron Thompson. The 30 year-old injury-prone first baseman's ability to get on base should provide more scoring opportunities for a Florida team vying for a wild-card berth.
2016 The Brooklyn Cyclones honor Wilmer Flores with a bobblehead commemorating his emotional roller coaster at the end of July last season. The 23-year-old Venezuelan infielder, believing the Brewers had traded for him, cried on the field, but three days later, hit a walk-off homer to lift the team, beginning a sweep over the division-leading Nationals, that will put the jubilant Mets in first place for the rest of the season.
