The worst offensive season by a rightfielder has stood for over 100 years as Jack Dunn in 1902 had an OPS+ of 56 (.211/.256/.249). But for this modern exercise, 1999 was officially The Year of the Shitty Hitting Outfielder as players from that season have topped the list at each outfield spot.

Wasn't Derek Bell the operation shutdown guy? Boy if a 66 OPS+ was him giving his all, I really would hate to see him 'shut it down.'

And sadly I have to point out that Jeff Francoeur is currently on pace to tie for 4th on this list, and I think he does qualify with his number of at bats.

Yes, Derek Bell did pull "Operation Shutdown" in 2002 by refusing to play when the Pirates told him he'd have compete for a job in Spring Training and he did this after hitting .173/.287/.288 in 46 games in 2001. Hey even the Pirates have standards.

 

And yes, Francoeur needs to go on a tear down the stretch to avoid this list.
