Andújar Cedeño Donastorg or Andujar (Donastorg) Cedeno

Andujar Cedeno was signed by the Astros in 1986 as an amateur free agent. In 1992 he hit for the cycle while playing for the Astros. In 1994 he was part of a huge twelve player deal between the Padres and the Astros. He played in 49 games for the Padres hitting 3 home runs and hitting .234. In 1996 he was traded to the Tigers for John Flaherty and Chris Gomez. In September of 1996 he was traded to the Astros as part of a conditional deal. He played his final major league game in 1996. Then it sounds like he returned to the Domician Republic and may have been playing there. In 2000 after a game between the Tigres de Licey & the Azucareros del Este in Santo Domingo the car he was driving was hit head on by a truck and he was killed. He was 31 years old.
