Shawn came in 5th in Rookie of the Year voting in 1995 but spent the next two seasons still trying to break into a full time role. If you read his book,'The Way of Baseball: Finding Stillness at 95 mph', you see that Shawn and manager Cito Gaston didn't exactly see eye-to-eye on things. It took until Tim Johnson became manager in 1998 before Green got a every day role with the team. Shawn's last season with us, 1999 he hit .309/.384/.588 with 42 home runs, 45 doubles, 123 RBI, 134 runs scored, 20 stolen bases and won a Gold Glove.
After the season the club announced that Cito would return to be batting coach and Shawn asked for a trade. Traded to the Dodgers, he had a great run there, 5 seasons, hitting .280/.366/.510, with 162 home runs and 509 RBI.
For his career Shawn hit .283/.355/.494, with 328 home runs. 445 doubles, 1070 RBI, 162 stolen bases in 1951 games over 15 seasons. He played in 2 All-Star games, had 1 Gold Glove and 1 Silver Slugger award.
