Brook Jacoby was never a great player, but he ended up being one of the best third basemen in Indians history after a fairly long starting career at that position. In 1983, the Indians sent aging starter Len Barker to the Atlanta Braves for two young hitters, Brett Butler and Jacoby. The trade worked incredibly well for the Indians who aquired their starting third baseman and center fielder for most of the next decade.
Jacoby's best years came from 1985-1987 when he averaged more than 20 home runs a season with almost 80 RBI per season. Even after his prime, he continued to produce, ending his time with the Tribe with more than 500 RBI and runs, 190 doubles and 120 home runs. Nearing the trade deadline in 1991, Jacoby was traded to Oakland to finish out the last year of his contract. In 1992, he resigned with Cleveland as a free agent to finish out his career. The Indians already had their new third baseman (Jim Thome) ready to go, so they no longer had any need of Jacoby's services in 1993. Brook Jacoby is the current batting coach for the Cincinatti Reds.
