Selected in the first round of the 1990 MLB Draft after being touted as the "next Nolan Ryan," Van Poppel struggled right out of the gate. His best season with Oakland was a 4-8, 4.88 ERA campaign in 1995. He spent time with seven teams before retiring with a 40-52 record and no more than seven wins in any season.
