Cisco Carlos makes a brief splash

1968

White Sox rookie pitcher Cisco Carlos was part of the cover shot for Sports Illustrated under the headline “The Best Rookies of 1968.”

Unfortunately, Carlos didn’t turn out to be one of them, either in the short term or the long one. In fact, of the five players on the cover only Johnny Bench and Mike Torrez made a name for themselves in the sport.

In two-and-a-half seasons and 62 games with the club, Carlos went 10-17 with a 0.7 bWAR.
