Melvin (Ramos) Nieves played 127 games over 3 years between 1993 and 1996. The Braves traded him to the Padres as part of the Fred McGriff deal. He hit .207 with 17 home runs during his time in San Diego. He was traded to the Tigers as part of a multi-player deal. I don't remember how I obtained this signature. Wilbert Nieves is the brother of Melvin Ramos and just finished a season with the Nationals. He made his major league debut with the Padres in 2002 and then played in the minors for a couple of years and then reappeared in 2005 with the Yankees for three years, and has been with the Nationals for the last three years. Again I don't remember how I don't remember how I obtained the signature.
