In the spirit of the Baseball Names II threads started by Edex, and Baseball III started by Bearcat500, post a major league baseball player's name using the FIRST letter of the LAST name of the posted player as the FIRST letter of the next FIRST name.

Example: Roger Maris
Mike Piazza

First letter of last name = first letter in first name.

Some rules:

NO CONSECUTIVE REPLIES TO THIS THREAD unless there has not been any activity in the previous 24 hours. In that case there will ONLY be one consecutive reply.

The player must have appeared in at least 10 major league games in the modern era (1902-current) Any commonly known name for a player will work, therefore Babe Ruth or George Herman Ruth would either be an acceptable answer as would either Richie or Dick Allen.

I'll start with:

Mark Buehrle

Dave Winfield - drafted by four teams in three different sports. The San Diego Padres selected him as a pitcher with the fourth overall pick in the MLB draft and both the Atlanta Hawks (NBA) and the Utah Stars (ABA) drafted him. Even though he never played college football, the Minnesota Vikings selected Winfield. He is the only athlete drafted by four leagues.
