MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 RON DUNN

Here's a "missing" card for a guy that got into 23 games for the Cubs in 1974, good for 80 plate appearances, second baseman Ron Dunn:


Those 23 games marked the extent of his rookie year, as he batter .294 with 20 hits, seven of which were doubles and two of which were homers.
He also drove in 15 runs while scoring six, with 12 walks thrown in.
The following year he played in 32 games for the Cubbies, batting .159 with seven hits in 44 at-bats, and as it turned out those would be the final games of his Major League career.
Though he played a relatively full season in the minor leagues that season, he never appeared in a professional game again.
Anyone know why the guy went from Triple-A ball to nothing just like that?
His entire two-year career had him bat to the tune of a .241 average, with three homers and 21 ribbies, along with eight runs scored and 13 extra-base-hits.
