Today we have a “missing” 1973 career-capper for three-year Major league infielder Rafael Robles, who played the last of his Big League games during the 1973 season:
Robles played all three of his seasons with the San Diego Padres,
appearing in 18 games in 1972, hitting .167 with four hits over 24
He played all of 1971 in the Minor Leagues after coming up in 1969,
playing in six games while coming back in 1970 and appearing in 23.
All told, he played in 47 games for the new San Diego franchise, hitting
.229 while collecting 25 hits over 133 at-bats, with seven runs scored
and three runs batted in, along with four stolen bases over three
seasons under the sun.
