February 5, 1998: Roberto Petagine is traded by the New York Mets to the Cincinnati Reds for Yuri Sanchez (minors).
...
December 2, 1998: Roberto Petagine is purchased by Yakult Swallows (Japan Central) from the Cincinnati Reds.
...
In Februrary, Bowden decided to take a flyer on Roberto Petagine, a Mets minor league first baseman who had twice been named MVP for different minor leagues (1993 for AA Texas League and 1997 AAA International League, the link here is biographical, not statistical information).
...
Petagine was coming off a AAA season where he hit .317 with 31 homers and 100 rbi, and had a .431 OBP and an OPS of 1035. However, Petagine had not hit at the big league level, batting .216 over parts of four seasons and 291 plate appearances. A favorite of the new found voice of the "sabermetric" community, statistical analysts felt that Petagine just needed more of an oppotunity, while many scouts had considered him a "AAAA" player, one who would feast on minor league pitching but could not succeed at the major league level. He was sent to AAA Indianapolis to start the year.
...
Petagine was recalled in October, but the career first baseman spent most of his time in RF as the Reds had committed themselves to Casey at 1b.
...
Petagine had had another fantastic AAA season and was again named the International League MVP, this time batting .331 with 24 homers, 109 rbi, a .436 OBP, a .631 SLP, and an OPS of 1.053. With the Reds, Petagine got 79 plate appearances, batting .258 with 3 homers and 16 walks giving him a .405 OBP and an OPS of 873. He was sold to the Japanese Central League Yakult Swallows.
...
Roberto Petagine went to Japan and became of their biggest stars. He won three Gold Gloves for his fielding prowess at 1b, won two home run titles, and yet another MVP award. In 2003-04, Petagine was Japan's highest paid player and was acquired by the Yomiuri Giants to take the place of Hideki Matsui who had signed with the New York Yankees.
...
As for Petagine, he hit .317 with 223 home runs and 594 rbi in 756 games.
Petagine made one more attempt to play in the United States. Before the 2005 season, he left his status in Japan to sign a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox. He underwent knee surgery in spring training and missed the opening of the season. He again tore up the International League, batting .327 with 20 home runs and 69 rbi in 74 games and a 1.088 OPS before being recalled in August by the Red Sox. He batted .281 with one homer and nine rbi in 36 plate appearances. Released by the Red Sox, he signed with the Seattle Mariners, but only hit .185 in 32 plate appearances before being released, his final major league average being .227 with 12 homers, and a .345 OBP in 438 plate appearances. He played 38 games in the Mexican League in 2008 and batted .372. a .488 OBP, .605 SLP, and a 1.092 OPS.
