R.I.P., Claudell Washington, who died at 65 after battling illness in recent years. Spent six seasons with the #Braves and was an All-Star for them in 1984 when he hit .286 with 17 homers, 21 steals and a career-best .842 OPS.

Godspeed to Claudell Washington, who hit .275 for the #Mets and .277 for the #Yankees and is probably in the Top 10 of the 135 players (136 if and when Dellin Betances plays in Queens) who’ve spent time for both (an admittedly thin list).

Former MLB player Claudell Washington has died at age 65. Truth be told, I recall no specific playing highlights from his career. That said, I do remember Claudell & former Braves teammate Rafael Ramirez appeared often in my mid-1980s baseball card packs. #RIPClaudellWashington
