Random Topps Card of the Day: 2004 Topps Traded and Rookies #T147 Scott Dohmann

Thanks to the Topps Card Randomizer, introducing the Random Topps Card of the Day for Friday, December 27, 2013:

  • Official Card Set Name and Card Number: 2004 Topps Traded and Rookies #T147.
  • Player Name, position, team: Scott Dohmann, pitcher, Colorado Rockies.
  • Major League Debut: May 15, 2004.
  • Last Line of Statistics: 2003 stats (Tulsa, AA-Texas): 50 G, 93.2 IP, 9-4, 47 R, 43 ER, 102 SO, 29 BB, 4 GS, 0 CG, 0 SHO, 1.31 WHIP, 4.13 ERA.
  • Any special information about player: Drafted by the Rockies #6th, June 2000. Bats: right. Throws: right.
  • Number of regular Topps Cards (includes regular and traded cards only): 1. This is his first and only Topps card.
  • Blurb on the back: "When injuries and ineffectiveness tortured the Colorado Rockies middle-relief crew in 2003, Scott became a primary option, earning multiple recalls from Colorado Springs (AAA). The former Ragin' Cajun (he helped Louisiana-Lafayette to the '00 College World Series) has led two Minor Leagues in starts, but now is being developed as a reliever. In '02, Dohmann was third in the system with 13 wins for Salem (A)."
  • Commentary: Funny, how did Christopher Scott Dohmann make his MLB debut in 2004, when his Topps card says that he was called up multiple times in the 2003 season? I think it's a typo...making this an uncorrected ERROR CARD!!! Dohmann was an effective reliever for the Rockies when he was on the 25-man roster. In 41 games, he earned an 0-3 record with an ERA of 4.11 and 49 strikeouts in 46 innings of work. In 2005, although 2-1, his ERA ballooned to 6.10 in 32 games. He would be traded off to the Kansas City Royals in a deadline deal in 2006. He would soon join the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2007 and would be among those that shed the "Devil" name in 2008. He would sign minor league deals with the Diamondbacks in 2009 and Dodgers in 2010, although he would never make it back to the majors. He finished his career with a 9-8 record (he never lost a decision with Tampa Bay, going 5-0), an ERA of 5.32, 166 strikeouts, 96 walks, and a WHIP of 1.598. He only has one regular (which includes cards in the traded set), but in the 2005 Topps Total set, was paired with fellow reliever Brian Fuentes.
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $0.15-$0.40.
  • How many cards of each player do I own?: 1 card.

Tomorrow's card will be: 1991 Topps #635. Post will arrive at 1:00 PM CST. Flash back with the blog tomorrow.
