Octavio Dotel

Teams played for: Mets (1999), Astros (2000-2004), Athletics (2004-2005), Yankees (2006), Royals (2007), Braves (2007), White Sox (2008-2009), Pirates (2010), Dodgers (2010), Rockies (2010), Blue Jays (2011), Cardinals (2011), Tigers (2012-2013)

Potential 1% combos: Like Jackson, Dotel is well known for playing for as many teams as he did. Still, a Braves combo with a team from a one of his shorter stints (Mets, Yankees, Royals, Dodgers, Rockies, Blue Jays, or Cardinals) will be a solid choice.

3. Jonny Gomes

Teams played for: Devil Rays/Rays (2003-2008), Reds (2009-2011), Nationals (2011), Athletics (2012; 2014), Red Sox (2013-2014), Braves (2015), Royals (2015)

Potential 1% combos: People are most likely to remember Gomes for his time with the Rays, Reds, and Red Sox, however, any combo with any of the teams he played for will likely yield a 5% result or better.

2. Matt Joyce

Teams played for: Tigers (2008), Rays (2009-2014), Angels (2015), Pirates (2016), Athletics (2017-2018), Braves (2019), Marlins (2020), Phillies (2021)

Potential 1% combos: Joyce is a great pick because he played for so many teams for just a year. A Braves/Marlins, Braves/Phillies, Braves/Angels, Braves/Rays, and Braves/Tigers are all combos that would likely give you that 1%.

1. Liván Hernández

Teams played for: Marlins (1996-1999), Giants (1999-2002), Expos/Nationals (2003-2006; 2009-2011), Diamondbacks (2006-2007), Twins (2008), Rockies (2008), Mets (2009), Braves (2012), Brewers (2012).

Potential 1% combos: While Hernandez had memorable stints with the Marlins and the Expos/Nationals, the other teams he played for are often forgotten. A Braves combo with any of the one-year stints he had with other team (Rockies, Mets, Brewers), could get you a very low result, while using him as with the Marlins or the Nationals might be a little more risky.
