Steve Brye was the Twins' first round draft pick in 1967 and though he made his big league debut in 1970, he didn't receive regular playing time until 1974.  He had a nice glove and hit his fair share of doubles, but he never developed into the star the Twins thought they drafted.  After two good seasons as a platoon outfielder, he was dealt to Milwaukee at the end of spring training in 1977.
