Alex Cora

Jose Alexander Cora
Batted: Left
Threw: Right
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 180 lbs.
Born: October 18, 1975 in Caguas, Puerto Rico
Drafted: 3rd round 1996 by the Los Angeles Dodgers
Acquired: as a free agent, January 2009
Departed: released, August 2010

 

Brought in for 2009 to provide backup for Luis Castillo and an occasional rest for Jose Reyes; when Reyes went on the disabled list, Alex's role increased significantly. He had one of the most successful debut seasons ever for a major-league manager, when he brought home the World Championship to the 2018 Boston Red Sox.  Shown here on 2002 MLB Showdown; several other nice-looking cards are pictured below.
