1B-DH-OF 1987-94 Mets, Pirates, Orioles, Reds, Indians, Expos
Milligan struggled in his 1988 trial with the Pirates, but improved after being traded to the Orioles, where he platooned at first base with the likes of Jim Traber, David Segui, and Glenn Davis for four seasons. Despite regularly appearing among the leaders in on base percentage, Milligan wasn’t re-signed by the Orioles following the 1992 season, and he failed to secure a regular role in brief stints with Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Montreal.
